We’ve received numerous enquiries asking what tomorrow’s Licensing Board hearing means for this weekend’s scheduled events.
We wish wholeheartedly that we could provide concrete answers for you at this stage, but unfortunately we cannot know what the immediate future of The Arches looks like until the conclusion of the hearing.
We will make a full announcement on this on Wednesday 1st April by 5pm at the latest.
Please continue to bear with us. Your support is invaluable to us during this difficult time.

Having worked in increased partnership with Police Scotland and done all that has been asked to further mitigate risk at club events since the tragic events of February 2014, the Arches is disappointed to be summoned to tomorrow’s Licensing Board hearing.
However, we remain wholly committed to the health and safety of our customers and are fully prepared to consider any further recommendations that the hearing may bring.

The Arches would like to apologise to customers attempting to contact box office today. The building will remain closed today, but we’ll be open again tomorrow from 9.30am.
Thank you for your support and patience.

The Arches can confirm that, in consultation with Police Scotland on the night, Saturday’s GBX club was closed earlier than advertised due to police licensing concerns and not as previously intimated.
We would like to clarify that our robust zero tolerance policy, including all additional measures recently agreed with Police Scotland, were in force on the night.
The incident happened within the venue and the patron concerned was admitted to hospital as a result of an alcohol related episode, but subsequently released.
Further information will be made available once we have it, please bear with us. In the meantime, please feel free to direct specific questions or concerns to Georgia@thearches.co.uk.
