You are invited to come and visit Saint Lukeâ€™s in the Eastend within the first month of it reopening to the public.Â Saint Lukeâ€™s was built in 1836 as a working church but after being disbanded in 2012 it needed to find a new purpose. The Church is a historic landmark and internally the church will be renovated to a standard that will bring back the original look but will have the latest technology in sound and lighting. The Church has a multitude of historic features include stained glass windows dated 1870-90 and a full height functioning organ which is over 100 years old. Saint Lukeâ€™s will establish as a new, vibrant and innovative venue within this environment, offering consistent, high quality entertainment in a fresh and appealing facility. Saint Lukeâ€™s will provide live entertainment and function facilities, alongside the capacity to host periodic special events. The venue will provide a type of facility that does not currently exist in the East End of Glasgow. Saint Lukeâ€™s will feature a bar and restaurant which will operate 7 days a week, becoming a significate draw to future customers. Through smart design and imaginative programming, Saint Lukeâ€™s will be used for a variety of activities for all ages, demographics and interests.Â It will create a multipurpose arts, culture and community centre which will enhance the area, improve facilities for the local population, provide employment opportunities, and help address some of the social concerns prevalent in the area.
