Mark the occasion with the Friends of the People’s Palace Winter Gardens and Glasgow Green

On Sunday 14th April at 3:30pm we will be outside the People’s Palace with St Francis’ Pipe Band and St Dennis Children’s choir to mark the People’s Palace long overdue refurbishment. At 5pm the doors will close and not re-open until 2027. The refurbishment will include the Winter Gardens, which is fantastic news for us, as the Gardens have been closed since 2018 and now completely destroyed.

Spokesperson from FPPWGGG states: “We are delighted that the first stage of the funding has been awarded by the National Heritage Lottery Fund for this much-loved building, which is of significant importance to Glasgow’s culture & heritage. We are delighted at the prospect of the Winter Gardens re-opening. We hope to work closely with Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Life, and other stakeholders involved in the restoration of this important civic resource – telling the social history of our city and to be able to sit once again and enjoy a cuppa in the beautiful Winter Gardens”.

David Hayman, Actor, Humanitarian Activist, one of our many supporters states:

“I remember as a ten-year-old boy being taken by my mum to the People’s Palace. Wow we’re going to a Palace! It turned out to be a treasure trove. I was taken on a journey about our great City told through the stories of its people with humanity and humour, tragedy and joy, its politics and trade unions, the people’s history of Glasgow. It is a thing of beauty, we must preserve it for future generations.”
