THE BRIGGAIT, GLASGOW

EVENT INFORMATION

The Glasgow Coffee Festival is 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

What is the GCF coronavirus advice?

The Glasgow Coffee Festival team is monitoring coronavirus (COVID-19) advice provided daily by local government and the World Health Organisation.

The festival has been rescheduled from May to October 2020. We have adapted some of the festival activities to ensure there is minimal risk to our exhibitors, contributors and visitors.

  • Hand sanitiser will be compulsory upon entering the festival
  • Hand sanitation points will be available throughout the festival
  • Our coffee cuppings will now be brewed coffee tastings.
  • We will have even more volunteers on hand to assist in all aspects of the festival.

To ensure there is low risk to coronavirus to everyone participating in Glasgow Coffee Festival we request the following. Please do not attend if:

  • you think you might have coronavirus
  • you have been in close contact with someone with coronavirus.

Please call 111 if you have the following symptoms, do not go to your GP:

  • a cough

Current information on UK Government advice is available here.

The Health and Safety of all participants of Glasgow Coffee Festival is our priority.  We will continue to monitor the COVID19 situation ahead of the new festival date and keep all ticket holders informed.

We very much look forward to celebrating coffee with you at GCF20!

Thank you for supporting us!

Can I buy tickets on the door?

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

What does my ticket include?

Ticket price includes general admission to access over 40 exhibitors, 16 presentations, 16 tastings, 8 film screenings, product demos, panel discussions, competitions and a prize draw entry!

Is this a child friendly event?

Yes. And accompanied under 12s enter free. We’ll have a kiddy activity area and babycinos galore!

Can I bring my own cup?

just like previous years we are inviting you to bring your own cup to Glasgow Coffee Festival. We are proudly a disposable cup free event and will save 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.

Join us in the #reuserevolution!

Where do the profits go?

The purpose of the event is to support independent businesses and the growth of our local coffee industry.  Profits will be donated to our nominated charities.

How do I get to the venue?

The Briggait is in central Glasgow at 141 Bridgegate, G1 5HZ.  Argyle Street, Queen Street, High Street, Central, St Enoch and Buchanan Street stations are all within walking distance as are many bus routes.  There are many bike stands nearby and also three car parks within a few minutes walk.
