Join us on an informal walking tour of Partick, starting from the Kelvin Hall. Together we shall be exploring the festival’s theme of Sustainable Communities looking at the natural and built environment of this vibrant area. Using archival photographs from Glasgow Museums collections we’ll reflect on how the area has changed. Is it a greener and cleaner place to live now than it was last century? We’ll also look shops and public buildings and how these reflect the changing needs and tastes of the local population. Tour lasts 1 hour, covering a distance of approximately 1.5 miles.
This walking tour will be led by two members of Glasgow Museum’s learning team based at the Kelvin Hall. The tour will be informal and not overly factual; participants are welcome to share their knowledge and stories of the area as we go.
Saturday @ 11:30am and 2pm
Trail duration: 90 minutes
