ANNOUNCING East End Free Festival – 7th September

East End Free Festival

Join us on the 7th September 2019 for a full day of celebrating music and arts at The Space

Think the Edinburgh Free Fringe, only more Glaswegian, and more regular. Taking place on the 7th September and ran by charity People Without Labels, this arts and music all-dayer will take place every month at The Space, smack bang in the heart of The Calton.


This one day festival is absolutely free to attend and will be showcasing a diverse and representative array of acts from all over Scotland! 

We are excited to welcome you to the premier instalment of this monthly all day festival. 


The East End Free Festival festival is committed to:

.:: Showcasing a diverse and representative array of acts ::. 
That means 50/50 gender representation and providing space for performers of all ages, ethnicities, orientations and abilities.

.:: Having a presence throughout the year ::.  
A true resource for the community rather than a one-off pop up. Thats why we are putting it on the first Saturday of every month.

.:: Keeping the festival free at the point of use ::.
Music and art has the power to build communities, inspire and manifest new abilities and careers and it allows us to express our humanity together. The best antidote to a seemingly bleak world. Thats why it has to be open to everyone. People can pay it forward if they have the means but no payment is necessary to participate and enjoy.

.:: Pay all performers as much as we can ::. 
so artists aren’t out of pocket and can sustain and grow their immense talents. We will continue to try gather other sources of income so we can offer more opportunities to perform.

If you would like to get involved as a volunteer or perform please get in touch with us at

Calling All Artists & Designers!

otc3Help transform the interiors and exterior of our derelict premises into a vibrant space for communities in the East End and Greater Glasgow!

On The Corner are looking for creatives from all disciplines and walks of life to join our network of volunteers and help breathe live back into our building which is currently undergoing much renovation. Part of our ambition is to bring the joy of the arts to a much wider audience in the East End, therefore we want to make an aesthetically entrancing space within which to hold events and allow everyone’s creativity to flourish.

This mammoth task is completely open ended and may result in the creation of works of sculpture, interactive installations, textiles, painted murals, illustration and almost anything that makes our spaces more interesting and beautiful. At this point in time we are particularly in need of people to work on signage, murals and interior design. If this opportunity excites you then we’d love to hear from you!

Bring the noise!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


There is a distinct lack of space in Glasgow for creatives to make a lot of noise. We at OTC want to help alleviate that. Rather than being afraid of sound, we want to build a network hub with lots of creative sounds happening all over the place. That is why we want our flagship rental space to be dedicated to music in some way or other.

We are looking for maybe some music teachers to use the space as a practice suite

Or a record label to set up a base

Or a few bands to build a recording hub


You tell us what creative uses you can think of to use the space. We are happy to support whatever your needs are.


You would be sharing a floor with 10 other musicians and a building with multiple other music projects that includes an acoustic and live stage area as well as a sensory immersion chamber. Come join the network of good things happening!


The space spreads over 1400 sq ft in total and rent comes in at £1000 per calendar month however there is possibilities for further discounts for tenants renting long term and/or providing some social benefit to the community.


If this turns on any switches in your head please do get in touch and come on in for a look around.


Bring the noise!

It was also the world’s first electrically powered cantilever crane, and the largest crane of its type at the time of its completion.

Situated at the end of a U-shaped fitting out basin, the crane was used to construct some of the largest ships of the 20th century, including the Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Elizabeth 2. The Category A Listed historical structure was refurbished in 2007 as a tourist attraction and shipbuilding museum.
