The process of restoration is still ongoing and there is still some way to go before the hall is fully restored. I wouldn't even have known it was there but for looking in the List for something different to do at Halloween a few years ago. This year they are showing The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari with live musical accompaniment by Gladstone's Bag.
Just before you reach the Barrowlands if you are walking from town you will pass by a new public artwork commissioned as part of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme. Artist Jim Lambie has created the Barrowlands Album pathway featuring the names and dates of thousands of the bands who have played the venue since 1983. The are painted in bright colours and look like records on a shelf. I tried to find all the ones I had been to but you'd be there all day! It's a beautiful piece of art and would be great for band photos or wedding photos.
