This fascinating heritage walk takes you to the very heart of Glasgow’s East End, telling stories of feisty activists, radical change-makers, weavers and witches. Find out about the Templeton Carpet factory women, the Suffragettes held in Duke Street Prison, the woman who set up the Barras and the first cat to be a paid up member of a Trade Union!
