Conference Reception: Glasgow City Chambers
Wednesday 22 November 2017
With special thanks to the Lord Provost and Glasgow City Council.
The City Chambers was designed by Glasgow trained architect William Young and opened by Queen Victoria in August 1888. One of the most beautiful civic buildings in the UK, it promotes the economic importance of Glasgow and especially the role the River Clyde had in exporting goods worldwide. A focal point of George Square and one of the city’s most iconic buildings, its design includes Queen Victoria on her throne surrounded by emblematic figures of Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales. Since its opening the City Chambers has been at the very heart of civic government in the city and today it is the headquarters of Glasgow City Council.
