It comes after the building closed in Summer 2022 for repair and improvement works estimated at around £1.6m.

Glasgow Times:

The works have included repairs to the building’s roof, chimneys, and downpipes.

Doors and windows have been replaced in original styles and protection against rising damp has also been added.

Visitors will also get to see the new lime harling render that helps preserve the building and make it look as it did in the 15th century.

Bailie Annette Christie, chair of Glasgow Life and convener for culture, sport and international relations for Glasgow City Council, said: “Reopening Provand’s Lordship in time for Easter will offer as many people as possible the chance to visit.

"Inside, Provand’s Lordship remains a time capsule of medieval Glasgow, showing people what life was like in the city 500 years ago.

"The reopening of Provand’s Lordship comes as visitors have a final opportunity to visit the People’s Palace before it closes for refurbishment.

"The investment in both these Glasgow icons will protect these important cultural heritage assets for future generations.”

Provand’s Lordship is part of the Glasgow’s Cathedral Precinct. The area will have a significant part to play in celebrations of Glasgow’s 850th anniversary in 2025.
