East End Heritage Walk Credit: GWL/Claire Heuchan

The women of the East End have always had to be resourceful and industrious simply to survive.  This walking tour focuses on some of their achievements and struggles, and the radical nature of the area which gave birth to them.  Learn about the women of the Templeton factory, the suffragettes, the brazen women of Glasgow Green, Battling Betty, the woman who set up the Barras and many, many more!

East End Women’s Heritage Walk, Saturday 29th April, 2pm to 4pm

The tour includes a stop at Glasgow Women’s Library, dedicated to remembering such women and their achievements.

A fabulous couple of hours spent reconnecting with the history and events of the East End
