Join Mary Barbour and Agnes Dollan fresh from their performances at the March of Women on this pioneering women’s heritage walk that reveals the hidden histories of Glasgow’s West End: including pipe-smoking forewomen, revolting school-mistresses and the special car made by and for women. A unique and inspiring insight into the hitherto unsung women who made the West End.

Sunday 29th March, 2pm  (£10/£6)

All places must be paid for in advance as tour guides are not able to handle money on the day of the walk. Start point for the walk will be given in a confirmation email approximately 1 week prior to the walk and we will confirm once payment is received. Please check your spam or junk email folders if you have not received this in your inbox. Also, please note that the library is closed on a Saturday and Sunday so last minute bookings cannot be taken and messages will not be picked up until the Monday morning.

We ask that you do not bring dogs (or other pets) other than guide dogs along on the walks. Contact us if you are unsure about any thing, we are happy to answer any questions.
