BiTastic! will be held in the Drumchapel Community Centre. It’s a one-floor, fully accessible building with accessible toilets, ramps, and smooth floors throughout.
Getting to the Venue
Drumchapel is only an 18 min ride from Glasgow Queen Street or Central. We will have volunteers wearing purple sashes at Queen Street and Drumchapel stations to meet and greet you. There will also be a private-hire bus travelling between Drumchapel station and the BiTastic! venue at the following times:
Morning buses will run between 09:45am-10:45am
Evening buses will run between 05:30pm-06:30pm
We are also providing a free bus from central Glasgow to and from the venue. It departs at 9:30am from the Terrence Higgins Trust office at 274 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3EH and arrives back there at 6pm.
Alternatively, the SimpliCITY number 3 bus (direction: Govan) runs from Drumchapel station to the venue (get off at Drumchapel High School and walk up the hill around 130m). The journey lasts approximately 8 minutes through 10 stops.
Should you have mobility or pain issues that prevent you from boarding a bus that is not wheelchair accessible, please indicate this in your access requirements when booking your ticket. We will contact you about more suitable alternative arrangements.
Parking and Outside space
The venue has around 30 parking spaces, including 3 disabled parking spaces. The view from the outside is that of beautiful, relaxing countryside. Smokers will be able to take full advantage of that, as the designated smoking area will be set up in a privileged viewing spot (see map below for details).
Inside the Venue
Drumchapel Community Centre has outside ramps for access, and the front doors opens by pressing a button on the wall next to them. All doors are large enough to allow wheelchairs to pass through and easy to open. Signs for all rooms and toilets have Braille script.
We will have exclusive use of the venue for the day. This means we can put up our own signage and make all toilets gender-neutral.
We will use three workshop rooms (Trossachs Suite, Kilpatrick Room, and Cruachan Room), a large auditorium that can accommodate up to 180 people (Lomond Hall), and a quiet room. All rooms are a short distance from each other.
Any handouts or printed information provided by workshops will be available in large print on request and/or available digitally. If you require Large print please add this to your form when booking tickets on EventBrite or get in touch via email.
All signs and posters for the event will be available in large print on the day.
