Seeing Things: Maryhill Burgh Halls tour

20th November at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

We’d like to invite you to an upcoming Seeing Things trip; a tour of the Maryhill Burgh Halls and an opportunity to hear the hidden histories of some of Maryhill’s women. The tour will be on Monday 20th November, with a 10am start at Maryhill station and finishing before midday.

 

What: A tour of the Maryhill Burgh Halls

When: Monday 20th November. The tour starts at 10.30am so let’s all meet outside Maryhill Station at 10am.

Where: Maryhill Burgh Halls, 10-24 Gairbraid Avenue, G20 8YE (meeting point: outside Maryhill Station)

Who with:  Seeing Things volunteers Parris and Mattie

Why should you join us?

When Maryhill Burgh Halls opened in 1878, twenty stained glass panels showing local trades were installed. Only two of these featured women. Using her experience as a Glasgow Women’s Library tour guide, volunteer Annabel Marsh decided to seek out the hidden histories of some of Maryhill’s women. Our tour of the Halls is an opportunity to hear some of their stories – from Mary Hill herself to mill girls and fallen women, by way of suffragettes and temperance campaigners, there’s many a tale to be told!

 

The tour will conclude with tea and coffee in the Maryhill Burgh Halls cafe (free of charge).
