Atmosphere – it’s that thing you can’t quite put your finger on, but it can make or break a space.
Most of it comes from people, but it’s definitely enhanced by a solid soundtrack. At TCA, we often get asked what music we are playing. I have even run to the front desk at times myself, to ask what tune is on. To save you having to carry around phones to Shazam every track, we thought you might like to see some of the tunes we play in our Glasgow centres. So here is our public Spotify profile:
It’s impossible to keep everyone happy 100% of the time, but hopefully, we’re doing a good job. You will also hear additional playlists from staff. Music aficionado, strongman and all-round good guy “B”, AKA John Hutchinson has shared his own curated TCA playlist:
If you would rather climb in a quiet space, we have 2 “Quiet Time” sessions a week at The Newsroom, from 10-11am on Mondays and Fridays, where we have minimal or no music.
Following on from The Prop Store Party, we’ll have DJs in the centre for our Winter Bouldering comp. Come, have a climb and enjoy some beats from multi-tasking staff members Laurie and Sam!
