Doors Open: East End Women’s Heritage Walk

20th September, 2015 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Doors Open East End Heritage Walk

East End Heritage Walk ImageDiscover the hidden heroines of Glasgow’s East End by joining our tour guides on Glasgow Women’s Library’s unique heritage walk.

The women of the East End have always had to be industrious and resourceful 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. Find out about the women of the Templeton factory, the Suffragettes held in Duke Street Prison, the woman who set up the Barras and much, much more!


This event has been programmed as part of the Doors Open Day festival. If you would like to book a place on this free Heritage Walk please visit the event page on the Doors Open website. Booking will be live from 10am on Wednesday 26 August.

Check out our full programme of Women Make History events here, including more walks, a heritage bike ride, reading events and more.
