Greater Govan & Glasgow Harbour, Govan
The vision for the Lyceum in Govan is to create a
multifunctional centre for media and communications and arts
The existing 500 seat cinema would be reinstated as a
multicultural movie house catering for Glasgow's multi ethnic
audiences as well as mainstream Hollywood classic and modern
The former Bingo hall which closed in 2006 would become a
multi-purpose events area catering for a wide range of events, from
weddings and banquets to music events and conference.
There are also plans for a Hollywood-esque restaurant.
Within the building there is a vast amount of unused space.
Ultimately this could be tranformed into film and arts training
areas for new talent and links would be established with
educational institutions to achieve this.
Find out more about the project on the Lyceum
Regeneration Facebook page.
The project is currently in the early stages, with talks taking
place with GCC, Historic Scotland and Creative Scotland on
partnerships and Funding initiatives to help make this
project a reality.
A funding application has been made to GCC Heritage and Design.
This would start the project by providing funds to repair the
external fabric of the building. Decision expected April 2011.
Between 2003 and 2014 Clyde Waterfront was a strategic
partnership comprising the Scottish Government, Scottish
Enterprise, Glasgow City, Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire
Councils. Its purpose was to promote the economic, social and
environmental regeneration of 13 miles of the River Clyde from
Glasgow city centre to Dumbarton.
