Director for Grand Central, Ryan Edwards, said: “After a massive renovation to Grand Central Hall we are excited to invite Glasswerk into the business, and see the main hall being used for live music, cinema and wedding events.

Similarly excited is Mat Ong, head promoter for Glasswerk, he said:Grand Central Hall is a beautiful building that had been left unkempt for far too long. I was eager to see what the refurb was like inside, and I was blown away by it. 

“The hall was purpose built for great acoustics and sight lines. Now the whole site offers great customer service with the accompanying food hall and different bars, and it’s a great venue for gig goers to come for a night out.”

With 13 years of experience, Glasswerk have worked with some of the biggest names in music, including Arctic MonkeysEd Sheeran and Enter Shikari, so we can certainly look forward to some great gigs in the future at Grand Central Hall.
