Pollokshaws Burgh Hall

About

The Trust's overall mission is to restore, develop, establish and sustain Pollokshaws Burgh Hall as the hub of the new Pollokshaws Village and wider community. Designed by Sir Robert Rowand Anderson as a public hall, it incorporates features from the Old College Buildings - Glasgow University. The Hall opened in 1898 and survived the 1960s regeneration in which Pollokshaws lost 89% of its built heritage. It is one of Glasgow's overlooked, architectural gems, regarded locally as a social and cultural icon. The Trust's mission includes:-

  • generate an understanding and appreciation of the Hall: its architect and benefactor Sir John Maxwell, 10th Baronet of Pollok.
  • increase knowledge and appreciation of the past, present and future of Pollokshaws
  • encourage participation and involvement by the local and wider community in Hall activities and management of the Trust
  • establish networks with public, private and voluntary organisations to increase awareness and use of the halls promoting education, health, wellbeing and other community needs
  • achieve a balance between income generation and community activities to meet operational and management costs.
