In one of the rare years when Glasgow doesn’t have a finalist in the Turner Prize the city still manages to come out on top, by hosting the event.

The big arts prizes might normally be associated with London, but Glasgow has shown in the past it can be the perfect city for arts, culture and awards ceremonies.

Some might say given the success of city based artists in the prestigious Turner Prize it should be held here permanently.

The Turner Prize and the exhibition of finalists work at the Tramway is another coup for the city.

Already home to venues with permanent internationally renowned collections, such as Kelvingrove, GoMA and the Burrell Collection, The Tramway is a versatile venue perfect for the installation art for which the Turner Prize is known.

The exhibition will attract a different art lover from those who enjoy the historic works already in the city, and many will enjoy both.

With galleries and venues in the centre and around the city, Glasgow is firmly established as a city of culture.

Whether it is art, sport or music, Glasgow can put on a show and leave people wanting more.

In recent years we have hosted the MTV Europe Awards and the MOBOs, The Sports Personality of the Year was here last year and now the Turner Prize.

You just cannot keep a good city down.
