Ok, we are DELIGHTED to announce that we have more tickets available for sale for our HERstory event on Nov 15th 2017.
The Lord Provost of Glasgow, Eva Bolander, heard of our search for a venue and contacted the Trust personally to offer us space in the City Chambers! Absolutely amazing! We are so grateful for the amazing response from you all and for the help of the Lord Provost.
So we will be in the Satinwood Suite at the City Chambers. Tickets are back on sale now. Be quick – they’re gonna go fast…
Street names, buildings, statues – they often celebrate men, while the historical representation of women in Glasgow has been somewhat lacking. So in this talk we’ll be dusting off the history books to give the achievements of Glasgow’s women the recognition they deserve.
Shortly before the unveiling of the new statue in Govan on 17th November, we will hear from Dr Catriona Burness from the Remember Mary Barbour campaign about Mary Barbour, her activism and the public campaign to celebrate her achievements.
In the second half of the evening the History Girls Scotland, aka former GCHT staff members Rachael Purse and Karen Mailley-Watt, will delve into the fascinating history of Glasgow through more of its colourful, energetic and powerful female inhabitants including artists, designers as well as female ship- yard workers, activists and wealthy philanthropists.
£5 / free for GCHT Friends
