Wow!
Massive thank you and huge congratulations to our local primary schools, local residents and participants from Platform’s Saturday Art Club, Nu Gen and Art Factory groups on creating this epic 30m long community artwork!

Working with digital artist Janie Nicoll the groups produced original artwork based on Provan Hall’s surrounding natural landscape and it’s 500-year history.

Installation of the artwork is linked to the current restoration of the house, one of the oldest surviving buildings in Glasgow. Thanks to a unique partnership between Glasgow City Council and local community organisations, Provan Hall is set to become a unique new heritage visitor attraction.

Watch this space!

We love this amazing new community artwork in Auchinlea Park celebrating the restoration of Provan Hall - produced by artist
Janie Nicoll and pupils from local schools and the Art Factory and Nu Gen groups at Platform Glasgow. Check it out on Auchinlea Way at Glasgow Fort.

Thanks to Provan Hall and National Lottery Heritage Fund who supported the project.

Finally! We can talk about this! It’s been in the works for a while and we are so excited to see the House get some extra TLC and be restored. We’ve been consulted every step of the way and we cannot wait to see how it turns out. The House is now closed and we are missing it but it will be worth it in the end! Can’t wait to get back to doing events and sharing our love and knowledge with all of you 💜

Provan Hall in Easterhouse is one of the oldest surviving buildings in Glasgow & is to be fully restored as a new heritage visitor attraction thanks to a new partnership between our Seven Lochs team & local community organisations.

SiMBA, Simpson's Memory Box Appeal

Due to vandalism on the Tree of Tranquility SIMBA has had to make the hard decision and remove the tree from Provanhall.

Our SiMBA CEO Sara Fitzsimmons after the Tree was removed from the site today. Our thoughts are with you all tonight. Together we will find a future for our Glasgow Tree of Tranquillity 💜

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the Friends of Provanhall

Did you know . ......The tradition of celebrating Christmas was banned in Scotland for nearly 400 years until the 1950's. In the 1580's, this magical festival was obliterated from the list of Scottish festivals as it was seen to be supporting Romanism.

as the chair of the Friends of Alexandra park i would like to thank your group for their help with our Santa in the park today
Another Crackin Wee Night. Thanks to Brian and All the crew for organising and putting this on.
My grandson up provanhall house 2019
Can I suggest that on your homepage that you post opening times. Being unable to find out opening times from my NTS handbook, or your page, a Google search indicated that you are open 7 days and from 8:30am till 4pm, which on attempting to visit today, is incorrect.
Will there be a Halloween walk this year
The Local History group from Glasgow Kelvin College had a great visit to Provan Hall on Thursday. Many thanks to the Friends of Provan Hall for all their hospitality and to Stevie for the tour! More pics to follow this week.
Looking forward to a visit to Provan Hall this afternoon with the Local History Group!
Can you tell me what current opening hours are please? Someone told me they visited today and it was closed.
Good day doing up Provan Hall House for Halloween was just thinking as we want more volunteers for the woods Were are the friends of Provan Hall committee members every yr folk come & help 4r every event yet we never see any of these people the only one that does anything is John Dempsey who is run ragged organising all events & doing up the house without him nothing would take place & no funds would would be raised to help keeps this wonderful/beautiful building xx
