CAMPAIGNERS will protest against Glasgow Life closures on the reopening of the Burrell Collection

Glasgow Against Closures say they are "delighted" by £69million the investment in the collection but are angry that other cultural assets have been threatened with closure and have no guarantee of funding for their future.

The group, along with Save Our Libraries and other anti-closure campaigners, will be protesting at Pollok Country Park on Tuesday, March 29 from 11am to 12.30pm to demand all venues are reopened. 

In a Facebook event, the group wrote: "£69million was spent on the refurbishment of the Burrell Museum.

"While Glasgow Against Closures is delighted to see Glasgow Life and Glasgow City Council investing in the Burrell Collection we are also angered to see all of our other museums and cultural assets threatened with closure.

"No other cultural asset, including the People’s Palace and Winter Gardens or St Mungo’s Museum and Provand’s Lordship, has an investment plan for its future or a guarantee of secure funding.

"This short-sighted vision is nothing to be proud of.

"We demand the reopening of all our cultural assets.

"Join us, along with Save Our Libraries, the campaign to reopen the People’s Palace Winter Gardens and Glasgow Green, as well as other anti closure campaigners in protest at the Burrell reopening."
