On Monday, we will have a Civic Reception with a finger buffet at the wonderful Glasgow City Chambers (82 George Square, Glasgow, G2 1DU), hosted by the Lord Provost of Glasgow. Glasgow City Chambers is one of the city’s most prestigious buildings and is located in the heart of the city centre overlooking George Square. The building contains many examples of visual and tactile fine art, and contains what is reputed to be the biggest marble staircase in the world (which has been featured in many films).
