Built in Kelvingrove Park in 1924, the Kelvingrove Bandstand and Amphitheatre enjoyed 75 years of live performance and events before it closed in 1999 due to disrepair. Due to wide public support, a restoration project has been proposed and funding in the region of £1.8million is now being sought to bring the venue back to its former glory.
The project, led by the Glasgow Building Preservation Trust and supported by Glasgow Life, Glasgow City Council and local community groups, aims to preserve the fabric of this unique building for the enjoyment of future generations. It would create an open air performance space, fully equipped with modern facilities and infrastructure to host a variety of exciting events as well as improving the appearance of the park area to make it more welcoming and accessible for local residents and visitors.
Our vision is to have the bandstand and amphitheatre fully open and operational by spring 2014, in time for the Commonwealth Games.
