Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival

The Burgh Hall building at Gairbraid Avenue was formally opened on Friday 26th April 1878. It came about due to the increasing population growth in the town of Maryhill and the lawlessness this created. The H.M. Inspector of Police for Scotland had insisted that the Maryhill Police Commissioners take steps to provide a more suitable building for police purposes. They allocated a portion of ground at the junction of Gairbraid Avenue and Wyndford Street, (now Maryhill Road) and plans were prepared which included the necessary police accommodation, court room, bathhouse, washhouse, fire station and a public hall to seat 900.

But that's just a small part of the story! Join the curator of Maryhill Museum on a tour for Doors Open Days to learn more about the building and the history of Maryhill.

Booking is not essential to visit the site, but is required if you'd like to attend a guided tour. Check back on this page on 1 September for the booking link.
