This event is for Women* only. To attend, please book below and we will share details with you via email. If you would like to make a donation to Glasgow Women’s Library, you can do so here. You will receive your email a few days before the event takes place.
*All women-only events are inclusive of Trans and Intersex women, as well as non-binary and gender fluid people who are comfortable in a space that centres the experience of women.
These sessions take place outdoors on Glasgow Green. We gather at the Yellow Gazebo and there will be some walking between locations, 5-10 mins max, all on flat surface within the park. Carers and support workers welcome and they do not need to book a place. In the case of extreme weather conditions we will move to Glasgow Women’s Library. GWL is wheelchair accessible, with lifts to the first floor and the Mezzanine Floor. We have accessible toilets and all the bathrooms are individual closed stalls and are gender neutral. Our larger Events Space is fitted with an induction loop.
As we transition back to hosting more live events we are doing our utmost to keep everyone feeling safe and comfortable. Our seating will be laid out with social distancing. People will be able to sit solo, in pairs, or in groups/households of up to 4 people. We are unable to offer refreshments at this time, but understand that people may wish to bring their own water/drinks. We continue to wear face coverings when moving around the building, but if you wish you may remove these while seated as long as social distancing is maintained.
