Come and join us on this journey back in time and find out about the dramatic story of Springburn’s rise and fall as an industrial powerhouse and locomotive manufacturer to the world. Led by Paul Sweeney MSP, who is chair of Springburn Winter Gardens Trust, you will find out things you didn’t know about the city, all through the lens of the magnificent Winter Gardens and its location, Springburn Park.
