What About the Women?

About What About the Women?

Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust are delighted to host the Lost Glasgow - More Than Just Memories exhibition from 27th November 2017 until 27th February 2018, on loan from Glasgow City Heritage Trust.

To celebrate the local heritage theme of the exhibition, we are running a series of talks to delve into Glasgow's dynamic history. The famous Victorian stained glass windows displayed at Maryhill Burgh Halls represent the local workers and trades in the busy Maryhill area and their details tell the story of one of Glasgow's historic burghs. However, only two of the original 20 panels portray women. This lack of representation sparked local Glasgow Women's Library and Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust volunteer, Anabel's interest. She did some more digging and her talk What About the Women? highlights some of the forgotten histories of women in Maryhill and Glasgow dating back to the 18th century. Join us on Wednesday 7th February to hear Anabel share the stories of local Glasgow women in industry, arts and politics throughout the ages.

Date: Wednesday 7th February
Time: 6.30pm - 8pm
Ticket price: £5.00

For tickets please visit the Eventbrite page: whataboutthewomen.eventbrite.co.uk

Tea and coffee refreshments will be available.

Limited off street parking and disabled parking is available outside the Burgh Halls.
