Women, War and The West End

Glasgow City Heritage Trust will host the Women, War and The West End exhibition, telling the stories of ordinary women and what they did during the First World War.

Women, War and The West End

About Women, War and The West End

The Heritage Lottery Funded project, run in partnership with Four Acres Charitable Trust, Friends of Glasgow West and The Scottish Graduate School of Arts & Humanities, will focus on women who had an impact on Glasgow’s West End during & after WWI. The exhibition will also explore an under-researched aspect of life – the work of women and war memorials.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Women, War and The West End are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
