Wednesday, 28th September  | 7:00pm | The Merchants House, 7 West George Street, G2 1BA

Join GCHT for an in-person panel discussion that asks the question, “What Next for Glasgow’s City Centre?” 

Our panelists will look at the challenges currently affecting the city centre such as the legacy of the Covid 19 pandemic, the high number of vacant buildings and the decline in shopfront retail, as well as how solutions to these challenges can help tackle the climate crisis. 

After hearing from our expert panelists, we’ll open it up to you for questions and discussion, so you can have your say about how we can shape a city centre that maintains its historic character and is accessible, safe and functional for Glasgow’s people and visitors. 

The event will be chaired by Bailie Christy Mearns, Depute Lord Provost 

The panellists will be: 

Paola Pasino, Glasgow City Council 

Tam Coyle, Chair of the Merchant City & Trongate Community Council 

Thierry Lye, Chair of the New Glasgow Society 

Euan Leitch, Chief Executive of SURF 

Booking Essential 

£7 per person, £5 concessions
