Miss Cranston’s original Willow Tea Rooms in their Sauchiehall Street location were designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1903 and are now undergoing restoration by the Willow Tea Rooms Trust. Established in 2014 as a charity, the objective of the Willow Tea Rooms Trust is to restore the building to Mackintosh’s original 1903 design and ensure its preservation for subsequent generations. It will also create a new, adjacent exhibition and visitor centre, which will celebrate the achievements of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh and Miss Kate Cranston, as well as providing an information point/centre for visitors, which will be hosted by the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society. This world class cultural and heritage attraction will contribute to the regeneration of Sauchiehall Street and be known as Mackintosh at the Willow. It will open on 7 June 2018 to coincide with Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s birthday.

An exhibition of work by the late Michael Moulder goes on display in the former billiard room of the artists’ beloved clubhouse. The theme of this exhibition is Buildings and Landscapes. It covers two of Michael’s favourite artistic subjects. Many of the pieces, particularly the landscapes are inspired by holiday travels. Buildings, particularly prints were often inspired by places nearby. In this year in which we celebrate 150 years of Mackintosh, the exhibition contains a number of original prints of well loved and recognisable CRM buildings including Hill House.
