The Ramshorn remains temporarily closed and is not currently available for hire. Please keep checking our website for announcements.

SCILT and CISS opened the doors to their beautiful new location, right in the heart of Glasgow’s Merchant City in July 2019, and are pleased to announce selected rooms in The Ramshorn are now available to book!

While retaining many of the original features of the church, The Ramshorn offers two multi-functional event spaces located on the first floor, both easily accessible by lift.

Steeped in history, the building is enhanced by its impressive architectural setting, beautiful stained glass windows and with close transport links and connections, it certainly makes it a truly individual venue to host your event.



The Auditorium offers a bright space with flexible seating and tables to accommodate up to 105 theatre style, 60 classroom and 24 boardroom. The space also features in-built state of the art AV facilities suitable for meetings, showcases and events.

  • All of your support in the lead up really helped us to get ready for what was a really successful meeting. The session went really well, and the attendees were very complementary of the venue too. Hopefully we’ll get to hold another meeting there in the future.
