The venue on Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street, which has been closed since the Glasgow School of Art fire in June, was hoping to reopen to the public on 14 September. However, Glasgow City Council has now stated that it is still not safe and there is currently no date for reoccupation.
Work to stabilise the fire-ravaged building is continuing on schedule as the impact on businesses, residents and arts organisations within the security cordon continues to be felt.
