The Organisation

Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust (MBHT) was established in 2004 as a registered charity in North West Glasgow to save the Victorian Burgh Halls from demolition and bring the Halls back into community use. MBHT raised over £9 million to regenerate the building and it reopened in 2012 as a multipurpose space including an event venue, office spaces to let and local heritage site including a museum and exhibition space and collection of artefacts. Heritage has been at the heart of the Trust’s aims and activities from the beginning of the Burgh Halls’ regeneration project. MBHT continues to look for ways to engage and involve the local community to promote local culture, arts and heritage and highlight the excellent community facility of the historic Burgh Halls. 2024 will be an exciting year for the Trust with development of a new business plan, community engagement following our consultations and the further development of our café along with our programme of exhibitions, collaboration, workshops, talks and tours as well as our participation in a number of festivals.
