Venue Directions for Traders, Gamers and Punters

The venue for Wappinshaw this year is the Royal Concert Hall at the top of Buchanan St in the very heart of Glasgow. This is a significant upgrade for the show in terms of venue - and in terms of cost-of-venue - but we hope it will be worth it.

Wappinshaw Directions

The venue is moments away from Buchanan St tube station and five minutes away from both Queen St and Central Stations. The main city bus station is over the road to the rear.

Wappinshaw Directions (10)
If you are a punter, go straight in through the main entrance. The show will be in the hall directly opposite. Disabled access is round to the side - please follow directions and/or email the Wappinshaw address in the sidebr if you think you might need help.

Here is our hall. Power is available if you request it in advance.

Wappinshaw Directions (23)

For parking - please skip past instructions for traders/gamers to the last picture for info on the Buchanan Galleries carpark.

Traders and gamers will want to approach the building via the entrance off Killermont St. The entrance to the carpark is just next door to John Lewis and opposite the bus station.

Wappinshaw Directions (36)

Buzzer on the right of the gate to get access. Do not arrive before 0800 - we won't have access before then and neither will you!

Wappinshaw Directions (30)

Here is a picture of the unloading bay. Level into the hall. There will be a team member on the door and the venue is supplying staff to help with unloading and reloading. From bay to hall is ten yards. Once unloaded, you will be required to move your vehicle from the venue carpark.
