Spring is just around the corner and between a jam-packed programme, a new fundraising campaign, and community consultations, we’ll be keeping ourselves busy.

Regular workshops and courses, informal gatherings, and cultural events are all part of our programme this season.

With knitting, cooking, theatre, drama, yoga, upcycling and even angling, there’s a great variety to suit different age groups, interests, and budgets. Courses get added all the time, so drop in to hear about other ongoing activities.

Following on from the highly successful This Is Not A Fashion Show of 2014, Rags to Riches will again be turning the big pool into a catwalk on 14 May for an evening of upcycled fashion. We will also be hosting screenings in association with the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, theatre productions as part of the Southside Fringe Festival and a whole host of one-off and regular events. To see everything on offer, look at the PDF of the programme, or visit our online calendar.

With a new team member dedicated to working with the community in Govanhill, the next few months will be filled with opportunities for all community members to get involved and help us develop the Baths to work for you. The Baths belong to all of us, and we will depend on your advice and help as we get ever closer to reopening. If you have any ideas now on the best way to reach your community, email Katie at outreach@govanhillbaths.com to get in touch. Watch this space!


The Govanhill Baths Community Trust are proud to announce that after 14 years of determined campaigning the historic baths refurbishment will begin in 2017!

The total investment to restore and refurbish our beloved building stands at £4.1 million, from sources including the Heritage Lottery Fund, Big Lottery Fund, Historic Scotland, Glasgow City Council and many many donors and hardworking volunteers who have helped us achieve so much.

We are almost there, but we still £200K more to reach our target. We know we can do it.

During 2016, there will be many ways to help us reach this target including taking part in “I am a Govanhill Swimmer”, Sponsor a Tile, attending a production of The Steamie, and The International Light Show.
