Cottiers Theatre is one of Glasgow local landmarks. The unique atmosphere, amazing décor and the best theatrical performances in the city – this is what the venue has to offer. The building also has perfect acoustics, probably because it used to be a church. This impressive Gothic construction, called Dowanhill Church at that time, was built in 1865. The capacity of the theatre is 280 seats. Except for the theatre, Cottiers also houses a restaurant and a wedding venue.
