28/03/2024
  • Shoppers with a sweet tooth will be spoiled for choice as artisan dessert retailer, Batch’d, opens its doors at Buchanan Galleries.
  • Famous Scottish artist, Gerard M Burns, showcases his exclusive art display at STAG Gallery & Framers.

SWEET treat and dessert retailer, Batch’d, which champions small-batch bakeries, has scored a hat trick with the opening of its third branch in the Glasgow area at Buchanan Galleries.

Dubbed “the dessert shop with a difference”, Batch’d first opened a permanent kiosk in 2022 in Leeds, and since has experienced huge growth boasting 23 locations across the UK supporting seven independent bakeries.

The new Batch’d kiosk in Buchanan Galleries will be located outside LEGO on the ground floor of the mall, packed with a huge selection of delicious baked goods including handmade artisan brownies, cookies and doughnuts supplied by an impressive roster of independent and local bakers. Plus, the Buchanan Galleries branch will be the first to offer customers a fresh and creamy organic ice cream range to enjoy alongside their baked treats.

Harry Clavane, Managing Director at Batch’d, said: “We have made an incredible start to life in Glasgow, and received a very warm welcome from the community, with regular sell-out days. We are very excited about opening site number three in Scotland at Buchanan Galleries which falls perfectly with the launch of the Easter product range.

“With more Scotland sites opening in the next few months and these recent additions, our network will span over 28 locations across the UK.”

Alongside the new retail launch, STAG Gallery & Framers located in Buchanan Galleries, is hosting one of the city’s most renowned portrait artists, Gerard M Burns, on 21st March (Thursday) in an exclusive event to launch a showcase of the artist’s work, which will be on display in the gallery until 8th April.  

The exclusive and intimate free event on Thursday 21st March at the independent gallery will showcase some of Burns’ most prolific and hyper-realistic original oil paintings for the public to view and give them the chance to meet the artist behind the work.

From 4pm – 8pm, visitors are openly invited to peruse some of the artwork by Burns whilst enjoying a glass of fizz or sampling a glass of fine Scottish whiskey supplied by The Whisky Shop.

His paintings, which will be on display in the gallery for three weeks, are known for their modern take on traditional themes and appreciated for their lifelike detail and can be found adorning homes and workplaces worldwide. One of his well-loved works, “The Rowan,” was proudly displayed behind the desk of a former Scottish First Minister during his time at the Scottish Parliament, and in 2016, his portraits of Former First Minister Alex Salmond and author Denise Mina were entered into the permanent collection at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.

Cameron Reid, Owner and Gallery Director at STAG Gallery & Framers, said: “Gerard M Burns is a prolific artist and Glasgow native, and I’m so thrilled to be able to offer my space at STAG Gallery & Framers to him to showcase some of his most awe-inspiring artwork.

“As a business, last year we celebrated 10 years at Buchanan Galleries, and this is the first time we’ve been able to accommodate such a major showcase – we hope local art lovers will join us on this momentous occasion.”

Kathy Murdoch, Centre Director at Buchanan Galleries, said: “We constantly strive to offer our guests something new and exciting when they visit Buchanan Galleries.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Batch’d to the centre, offering the perfect pitstop for anyone with a sweet tooth; and the unique event at STAG Gallery & Framers provides a chance for the public to view the stunning artwork from Gerard M Burns, celebrate a Scottish artist honouring his Glaswegian roots and reflect on the master at work.”
