Bungo at the Bells

2020 Bungo at The Doorstep

Every year the Strathbungo Society organises a small gathering at the Moray Place end of either Marywood Square, or Queen Square that we call Bungo at the Bells. It is a great occasion for residents young and old to ring in “the Bells” every year. For obvious reasons, it won’t be happening this year, but we’ve seen the first Christmas trees and fairly lights giving the streets a sparkle.

With a vaccine on the horizon, let’s wash away the 2020 blues with a celebratory drink on our doorsteps, or from our windows and gardens to wish in what we hope will be a better year in 2021.

With a slant to our weekly key worker claps, the Strathbungo Society encourages everyone to come out at midnight and pay tribute to each other to mark the passing of a year none of us will ever forget.

Let us see if some fairy lights and a shared chorus of Auld Lang Syne can warm up our spirits. A Happy New Year from all at the Strathbungo Society when it comes!

    A great event to see in 2013, there was a terriffic friendly atmosphere and It was good to see the 3 pipers.
    Many thanks to those who organised, hosted, and tidied up after the event.

    Yep. Same drill this year, except it will be centered outside Andrew’s place. We just haven’t posted about it yet…

    Pollokshields Burgh Hall is holding a New Years Eve Party with food and drinks this year. I thought it might be good if we promoted each others events. Our party starts at 8. Tickets available from Kim at the Hall.

    Good evening all, just curious as to whether Bungo at the Bells was happening this year so as to bring in 2018?
