Hidden Gems of Garnethill: Map Launch for West End Festival
16th June, 2013 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm£7.50
Celebrate the launch of our new Garnethill Women’s Heritage Walk map during this years West End Festival.
Sunday 16th June, 2pm
Garnethill is at the heart of Glasgow’s city centre but remains an unknown quarter for many. This walk takes in its grand tenements, painted gables, miniature park, synagogue and world acclaimed architectural triumphs. These and other fascinating landmarks help us to tell the stories of some of the most remarkable achievements of women in Glasgow’s history. Within Garnethill’s confined boundaries we spotlight the women who pioneered European art movements, designed the banners for suffragette processions, created the first women’s Library in Scotland and made Garnethill into the most exciting cultural and multicultural hotspot in Glasgow.
