Recent Event.

Thursday 19th April
The Glasgow Grand Central Hotel

Surely everyone knows or at least knows of this hotel attached to
Glasgow Central railway station. But we did not know of its wonderful
history till tonight. The story of the hotel since it was built in 1883 was
fascinating, and included much of the history of Glasgow itself.
It was of course the stories of people who were staff or guests there which
made it so interesting.

The Glasgow Central Hotel

The speakers Bll Hicks and Jill Scott gave us an excellent
very entertaining and humorous evening.
