Remembrance Day Walking Tour & Talks

About Remembrance Day Walking Tour & Talks

From Cottiers on Hyndland Street to Websters Theatre in Kelvinbridge, the walk, between two of Glasgow’s finest churches, will take it in a range of interesting locations enroute including some notable urban set pieces in the West End, handsome Edwardian tenements and townhouses, an Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson terrace, the American Collegiate Gothic of Glasgow University Chapel – Glasgow’s largest war memorial – with its superb Art Deco sculptural programme and Glasgow Academy’s fine war memorial. The walk will also focus on women’s history in the West End including Queen Margaret Union and more idiosyncratic highlights such as the stylish bar which was once the former garage of motoring enthusiast Dr Marion Gilchrist, the first female to graduate from the University of Glasgow and the first woman to gain a medical degree in Scotland.

Tickets are £10.00 (excluding booking fee of £1.50) This ticket includes entry into the evening talks at Websters Theatre with a tea or a coffee on arrival. The talks will begin at 3pm. Speakers include:

Gordon Urquhart Postgraduate Course Manager at the Engine Shed and author of ‘An Notable Ornament – Lansdowne Church 'A Icon of Victorian Glasgow’ and Karen Mailley-Watt, PhD candidate at the University of Glasgow & The Glasgow School of Art and Project Manger of the Women, War & The West End project.

You can also buy tickets solely for the talks at Websters Theatre Upper Hall. For more information and tickets please go to the website.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Remembrance Day Walking Tour & Talks are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
