History of Glasgow Grand Central Hotel

Mon, Dec 6th 2021 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Hybrid Meeting

This week our speakers will be Jill Scott and Bill Hicks, both who have backgrounds in journalism, will tell us about the history of the hotel.  Built adjoining Central Station, it was once THE place in Glasgow to go to and was where the stars coming to appear in the city's many theatres and music halls chose to stay. Roy Rogers famously walked Trigger up the hotel's wide staircase in 1954 and other well known guests include names like Mae West, Bob Hope, The Beatles and Rod Stewart.
