Cottiers Theatre, originally Dowanhill Parish Church, was built in 1865 by William Leiper with designs by Daniel Cottier who created the intricate decoration and beautifully appointed stained glass windows. Our unique venue has been undergoing restoration work for the past 20 years, and to date £1.8 million has been raised by the Four Acres Charitable Trust who are dedicated to seeing the careful restoration of Cottiers completed.
Cottiers church building is situated in the heart of Glasgow’s West End with stunning exteriors, featuring the illuminated church steeple and set within mature gardens, making it one of the most charming West End venues, perfect for those once in a lifetime special occasions.
Our team are enthusiastic about providing a tailor-made event for each couple, whether it is an intimate gathering in our upstairs restaurant of 30 guests, a relaxed barbecue in our beer garden, or a full scale knees up with 200 of your closest friends in our ambient theatre, we at Cottiers will make it happen.
We are a flexible venue who aim to cater for all budgets, tastes and desires. With on site set designers and technicians at hand we are in a privileged position to be able to offer an extensive variety of theatre decoration at a competitive cost, unlikely to be achieved at other venues.
Cottiers prides itself in its excellent food and with the recent appointment of Head Chef Jonathan McFarlane (formerly of the Ubiquitous Chip) we are more than happy to create each couples very own bespoke menu. All menus can be accompanied by a variety of drinks packages, canapés and evening buffet options.
