TESTIMONIALS

“We loved the raw, industrial vibe for Just Start Here, our work-in-progress festival. It provided the perfect context for the audience and the artists who were trying something new – which chimes brilliantly with the ethos of the building –it was brilliant to host discussions about art and activism in a space that is centred around community progression and development. I can’t praise the Agile City team enough either, they were flexible and responsive and artistically engaged with what we wanted to achieve.”

Anna Hodgart – Engine Room Producer, National Theatre of Scotland

 

“Civic House provided the ideal festival hub for us. The ground floor of the venue served as café-bar, guest accreditation and screening room, which meant we were able to host festival delegates, guests, speakers and members of the public for screenings, discussions, live gigs, receptions, dinners and parties! We used Civic House Kitchen to cater for all our events and the food was excellent! The team went above and beyond to meet our hospitality and technical needs. We’re excited to continue working with Civic House in the future.”

Matt Lloyd – Director, Glasgow Short Film Festival

 

“As an open-source, eclectic festival we really look for our hub to support and present a great variety of our programme and we found the ideal space in Civic House. From clean, large open plan galley-style spaces to smaller, more unconventional rooms for smaller presentations We loved the additional opportunity to work outdoors via the exterior sites in front of the building – they gave us a great opportunity to really promote the festival. The team were also a joy to work with – well organised and responsive with an excellent range of skills and experience. We felt very well looked-after, comfortable and well-supported.”
