The conversion of the former ice arena to offer a spacious cutting edge fitness suite, twice the size of the original is now open to the public. With the very latest in gym equipment, accessibility has also been improved.

About the BGCP
BGCP Comic Con was started as The Big Glasgow Comic Page back in July 2012 mostly out of boredom and trying to find more Comic Fans to speak to, The Facebook Page gathered likes extremely fast as there wasn’t anything like it at the time and eventually this led to a Comic Book Group, Pub Quizzes, Tournaments and eventually a Comic Book Market.
We organized BGCP Comic Markets for several years until we had outgrown the smaller venues in Glasgow City Centre so set out to run Comic Cons in and out of Glasgow and further over Scotland including St. Enoch Centre, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, East Kilbride, Rutherglen, Loch Lomond, Stirling, Aberdeen and countless more towns and cities.
