Pollokshaws Burgh Hall
2025 Pollokshaws Road - off Christian Street G43 1NE
1897/98 Sir Robert Rowand Anderson (Cat A)
The 'stateliest and most conspicuous building in Pollokshaws', commissioned by Sir John Stirling Maxwell and gifted in perpetuity to the people of Pollokshaws. Designed by Robert Rowand Anderson in 1895-98.
This is a Burgh hall like no other; home to Scotland's only working Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ, you'll be taken back to the Golden Age of cinema when you walk through our doors. Join us for a unique film screening accompanied by the mighty organ or our traditional tea dance in the Ballroom, which was home to Strictly Come Dancing rehearsals.
Pollokshaws Burgh Hall was completed in 1897. It is said Rowand Anderson's design is based on the University of Glasgow's old college buildings in High Street, with the tower and the use of crow-stepped gables the most obvious similarities. Take a tour of this magnificent building where you can climb the clock tower and see the complex workings of the Wurlitzer.
There will also be film screenings and avintage tea dance at the weekend!
