This guided tour will take you on a time travelling journey from the Napoleonic Wars to the modern day New Gorbals. Our tour guides will bring alive suffragettes, Jewish and Asian immigrants, hawkers and weavers, all of whom have inhabited this part of Glasgow, often facing daily challenges to make ends meet, but using their resourcefulness and creativity to survive and thrive.

Part of the Southside Fringe.
