You might have heard of Patrick Geddes in association with Riddle’s Court, but what of the women connected to this 400 year old merchant’s house?

The Women of Riddle’s Court, Thursday 24th October, 5.30pm to 7pm, 16+


Hear about the lives of women gardeners, poets, painters and social campaigners such as Anne Morton Geddes, from Sheila Masson of the Scottish Historic Buildings Trust. There’ll also be a chance to see and listen to creative responses to Riddle’s Court from attendees of recent creative writing workshops with Nadine Aisha Jassat.


This event is open to all, 16+, and is free to attend. Please book below (you will be taken through the shopping cart but no charge will be made) or you can call us on 0141 550 2267. If you have booked a place and are no longer able to attend please let us know so that we can make your place available to someone else.
