"Economic advance is not the same thing as human progress" - John Clapham, A Concise Economic History of Britain, 1957
News - May 2014
We are delighted to announce that work has been completed on the restoration of Kelvingrove Park Bandstand - thanks to Glasgow Building Preservation Trust, the architects, funders and the contractors who did a great job with the renovation.
When the Friends of Kelvingrove Park started the campaign to save the bandstand we didn't expect it would take so long, but it has definitely been worth it to see this popular piece of Glasgow's history restored.
The venue is now being run by Glasgow Life and events have already been announced for Summer 2014, starting with the Glasgow Mela on 6th/7th June 2014 and including a series of concerts in August 2014.
You can see images of the bandstand restoration and many other stories and events in Kelvingrove Park on our our Facebook page.
