Kelvingrove Park Bandstand

KELVINGROVE BANDSTAND HISTORY - After many years of neglect, the Friends of Kelvingrove Park started a campaign to save the bandstand, which was then subsequently restored by Glasgow Building Preservation Trust with a great job done by the architects, funders and the contractors on the renovation.
The venue is now being run by Glasgow Life with a mix of community and live music events. You can read more about the Bandstand's history via this website.
