To highlight the heritage connection between The Shed & The Marlborough (The original name of the current venue), the events will be hosted in the upstairs loft area of The Shed with celebrities unveiling the launch of ‘The Blue Ballroom’ at The Marlborough. Michelle McManus and stars from River City will be on hand for a photoshoot to launch ‘Live @ The Shed Lunchtime Entertainment whilst supporting local heritage. The Blue Ballroom ceiling, once part of the Marlborough, has been dusted down and restored to it’s former glory as part of a heritage initiative with enhanced imagery highlighting some of Glasgow’s best known skyline landmarks (Glasgow University & Clyde Crane to name a few) so that future generations can admire and wonder at the craftsmanship involved. It is all part of the attempt to regenerate Shawlands as the place to be for shopping and entertainment. Lunchtime events will be provided every Saturday and Sunday.
A modern day example of connecting the new (The Shed) with the old (The Marlborough) is described by John & Sheila Wood who held their wedding ceremony in the Marlborough on January 17th 1959. John reminisces the day was a wild and wet January day and the couple have fond memories of the elegant sweeping giant stairwell and polite and welcoming Marlborough staff completing their memorable day. How ironic it is to find John & Sheila’s grandchildren 54 years on – Twins, Hannah & Ross Howie frequenting The Shed regularly as an intricate part of the club’s current PR team.
It’s all there, so don’t hang around book now!
