The Strathbungo Society was saddened to hear of the untimely death of Lesley McCallum last Sunday. Lesley was a stalwart supporter of the Strathbungo Society and former Committee member. Lesley organised and ran the Society Bottle Stall at every ‘Bungo in the Back Lanes’ event since its inception and also hosted many ‘Bungo at the Bells’ events at her home at the corner of Queen Square and Moray Place. Lesley’s help and encouragement of the Society’s work will be sorely missed and the Society passes on its sincere condolences to her husband David, brother Alistair and nephew Jack. Rest in Peace.
Chair, The Strathbungo Society
Welcome in 2017 with music, festive fun and a countdown to the bells at Strathbungo’s annual Hogmanay Street Party on 31st December.
Gather outside 52 Marywood Square from 11:45pm.
If anyone is bringing children along, get them banging pan lids with wooden spoons as loudly as possible from either end of Strathbungo as you approach.
See you there!
Feel free to make a noise at Bungo At The Bells tonight!

Welcome in 2016 with music, festive fun and a countdown to the bells at Strathbungo’s annual Hogmanay Street Party on Thursday 31st December.
Gather at the corner of Marywood Square and Moray Place from 11.45pm. See you there!
Welcome in the dawning of 2015 at the Strathbungo Society’s annual Hogmanay shindig, Bungo At The Bells.
The celebrations will begin with a parade from the junction of Titwood Road and Thorncliffe Avenue at 23.30. Please bring along Pots, pans, drums etc to make as much of a Hogmanay noise as possible!
People will then gather outside 53 Queens Square (corner of Queens Square and Moray Place) to welcome in the bells with music, mince pies, shortbread and mulled wine.
To help congestion, it would be really helpful if people could avoid parking at the end of Queen Square between 23.15 and 00.30.
See you there!
Bring your friends and family to Strathbungo’s annual Hogmanay street party!
For the 8th straight year, Strathbungo will be bringing in the New Year with our annual Hogmanay street party at and around the corner of Moray Place and Marywood Square.
Bungo at the Bells 2006 will kick off from two gathering points – 1 Moray Place and Vennard Gardens at Titwood Road – at around 11.30pm on Saturday, 31st December – and from there we’ll be rounding up revellers to make their way to the main site in time for the countdown to the Bells.
Come along and enjoy some music and merriment with your neighbours before setting off on your own rounds of first footing. And do by all means bring your friends and family from outside the community – show them how we do things, Bungo-style!
What’s a little rain…
In case of truly dreadful weather on the night, check back here for the latest information. And remember, even last year when Edinburgh cancelled their Hogmanay event, Bungo at the Bells went ahead – so dress warm and be ready to party!
