Tuesday Talks

Tuesday Talks at The RGI Kelly Gallery start again on Tuesday 26 February.

The forthcoming series spotlights some of the iconic buildings at the heart of our city, with their wealth of cultural heritage.

First up it’s the Central Hotel Designed by Scottish architect Robert Rowand Anderson, it opened in 1883.  Celebrated for its architecture, its glitz and its glamour, it has entertained most of the world’s politicians and movie stars.  And in 1927 it was the venue to which the world’s first long-distance television pictures were transmitted, from London by John Logie Baird.

Jill Scott and Bill Hicks are the authors of ‘Glasgow’s Grand Central Hotel’ – with tales to tell, including the story of its £20 million refurbishment, and over a century of illustrations.

To book call 0141 248 6386 or email gallery@royalglasgowinstitute.org
