25 years ago, a shopfront in Garnethill became our first home.  In this anniversary special, our history detective tour guides will be joined by one of our founding members, Dr Adele Patrick.

The Glasgow Girls of Garnethill, Sunday 7th May, 2pm to 4pm

Together, our tour guides and Adele will introduce you to some of the remarkable women who shaped this bohemian enclave in the heart of the city: artists, theatre people, activists and incomers.

We’ll guide you from the bustle of Sauchiehall Street to quiet and leafy back streets, passing GWL’s first premises where Adele will share her memories of the first years of it’s existence.
