Pollok House Library
Sir John Maxwell Macdonald founded Pollok House Arts Society in 1959. His vision, which continues into this century, was to provide chamber music and a convivial supper for a group of music lovers in the elegant and intimate space of Pollok House. The programmes presented include a wide variety of chamber musicians: soloists and ensembles, singers and instrumentalists.
Pollok House Arts Society Pollok House Arts Society will hold the first two of its 2018/19 concerts at 5.30pm on Sundays in the Library at Pollok House, Pollok Park, 2060 Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow G43 1AT. The Society is fortunate to own a Steinway Concert Grand Piano located at Pollok House.
The house is open to the public prior to 5pm and Pollok House staff are present to direct guests and to maintain security.
Drinks are available from 5pm pre-concert and at the interval. Wine to accompany supper may also be ordered at this time. A two-course supper with coffee is optional post-concert (£19), and is served downstairs in the Edwardian Kitchen, where artists and guests dine together. The last guests are asked to leave by 9pm. Supper must be booked one week in advance, via the Secretary. [email protected]
