Founded in 1451, Glasgow is the fourth-oldest university in the English-speaking world and is in the top 1% of the world’s universities. Over the last five centuries it fostered the talents of six Nobel laureates, one Prime Minister and Scotland’s inaugural First Minister. Albert Einstein gave a lecture on the origins of the general theory of relativity, and in 1957, it was the first in Scotland to have an electronic computer. Lord Kelvin and economist Adam Smith, to the pioneer of television John Logie Baird all walked in its hallowed cloisters and quadrants.
The Bute is the University’s main ceremonial hall, and is used for graduations and speeches, as well as large scale concerts. This vast Victorian hall, with its stunning stained glass, hosts regular choral and orchestral concerts, from groups such as the Dundein Consort and the university’s own Kelvin Ensemble.
