THE BRIGGAIT, GLASGOW

EVENT INFORMATION

The Glasgow Coffee Festival will be held in the grandeur of the public hall at the Briggait. The building was originally Glasgow’s fish market acting as a hub for business for over 100 years. Recently renovated to create a hub for business and culture it is the perfect central location to bring Scottish coffee aficionados together to promote their products. The venue is a short walk from major transport links and plenty of parking nearby make this an ideal choice.

FAQ

Can I buy tickets on the door?

We’d recommend purchasing tickets in advance as last festival was a sell out!

Does the venue have disabled access?

Yes

Is there parking near the venue?

Yes, there are 3 car parks within a few minutes walking distance.

What does my ticket include?

Ticket price includes general admission, one hot drink and prize draw entry.

Where do the profits go?

All profits in 2018 will be donated to World Coffee Research and Glasgow City Mission.

Is this a child friendly event?

Yes. And accompanied under 12s enter free.  We even have a face painter and farmer Bryce of Mossgiel Farm is bringing one of his ‘girls’.

Can I bring my own cup?

This year we’re inviting you to bring your own cup to Glasgow Coffee Festival. We’re excited to announce that disposable cups will not be available at this year’s event, saving thousands of cups from landfill. Cool, huh?!

How it works:

  1. Bring your own reusable cup! KeepCup will have washing stations and staff on hand to wash your cup so you can keep using it all day.
  2. Borrow a cup from KeepCup! For a £5 deposit, you’ll be given a KeepCup to use on the day.
  3. If you fall in love with using your KeepCup (which we think you will!), you can pay an additional £5 to take it home to reuse again and again.
