Stalls at Bungo in the Back Lanes 2018

Famous for its residents’ stalls selling everything from bric-a-brac and jewellery to homemade food and crafts, Bungo in the Back Lanes is an annual community festival that takes place in the lanes of Strathbungo.

The most exciting part of the festival is seeing which DIY stalls are set up on the day. Previous years have produced snail races, jumble stalls and a guess-the-sweeties-in-the-jar competition.

This year, #BitBL2018 is on 23rd June 2018.

Do you want to put up a stall?

Are you happy to host a stall or three in your garden?

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Residents are free to open up their garden or let someone else use it. Please let us know if you are happy for your garden to be used and we can help match you with a stallholder.
  • If you are not a resident and are planning on setting up a stall outside someone’s garden, please check first that they are happy for you to do so. Alternatively, there are several spots along the side lanes that are not directly outside people’s gardens.
  • If you are selling from your garden, make sure you have good signage on the lane letting people know what awaits them. Otherwise, nobody will know!
  • Do let us know where your stall is so we can add it onto our map.
  • If you are planning on selling food, you will need a food safety licence from the council. Please contact:

Bungo in the Back Lanes – clearing the lanes

Bungo in the Back Lanes… It’s back, this Saturday June 17th, and better than ever!

To make sure that we make best use of the space in the lanes, we’re asking that folk could move vehicles out of the lanes, just for the day.

So, if your property backs on to the lanes, can you help by moving your car / van / etc out of the lane for the day please?

Thank you!

Bungo in the Back Lanes – helpful hint for stallholders

Are you planning on having a stall in your garden or lane on Saturday?

Please ensure that you have adequate signage for your stall on the day, especially if you are tucked away in a garden. This helps us to keep people moving but – more important – helps them to find you so that you can earn more money in sales!

Volunteers wanted for Bungo in the Back Lanes

Running this event takes a fair bit of work so we’re asking if there are any folk who would like to help out, especially on the day (June 17 this year), although there is some preparation work as well:

  • help by putting posters up around the area (and taking them down)
  • help to make sure the lanes are free of rubbish and hazards
  • help by moving your car / van / camper / trailer / etc out of the lanes on the day (June 17)
  • help to set up and take down on the day
  • help to steward the lanes on the day
  • help on one of the stalls on the day

For more on what’s needed and how to volunteer, check our Volunteers page.

Bungo in the Back Lanes, 2016 – THANK YOU!

Nicola Opneing BitBLA BIG THANK YOU from The Strathbungo Society to everyone who contributed to making Bungo in the Back Lanes, 2016 such a great success.

We were lucky with the weather and with our local MSP, Nicola Sturgeon, who not only officially “opened” our event – she cut the golden ribbon – but stayed on to talk and chat to folks and stall holders and also made a few wee purchases into the bargain. Other elected representatives were also spotted – as were their tweets and re-tweets.

This year we had new volunteers, including from the Scouts and Harvest Bible, who joined Society volunteers to set up and take down the event; erecting tables and gazebos to placing chairs and signage and collecting donations from stall holders.

Thanks also to all who donated to the Society’s bottle and tombola stalls.  The income from these, plus donations from stall holders, is what largely funds Bungo in the Back Lanes, plus a grant from Glasgow City Council to cover the hire of tables, chairs etc.

What makes Bungo in the Back Lanes a great bottom-up, community-organised event are all the people who open up their lanes and gardens to celebrate the creativity, community and fun of living in Strathbungo.  It’s their enthusiasm that makes it the best community event in Glasgow – bar none – and the original Southside event.

 

What’s on at Bungo in the Back Lanes 2016
