Maryhill Burgh Hall Trust

About this Organisation

Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust (MBHT) was established in 2004 as an independent, registered charity in Northwest Glasgow to save the Victorian Burgh Halls from demolition, bring it back into community use and manage the building once reopened. The Halls were on the Buildings at Risk list since the 1960s, but MBHT raised over £9m to regenerate the building. It reopened in 2012 as a local heritage site, an event venue for private hire and office space to let. Events held by the local community, organisations, businesses and MBHT attract approximately 21,000 visitors a year. MBHT works with the local community to help promote and preserve local heritage. The Halls are an important historical asset in the area and are home to the striking stained glass panels by the Victorian artist, Stephen Adam. The glass represents the trades and industries of historic Maryhill. Heritage has been at the heart of MBHT's aims and activities from the beginning. Heritage projects have been carried out by staff and volunteers and in partnership with community groups since 2010. This has included local history research, exhibitions, community heritage events, workshops, performances and guided tours, walks and cycle tours.
