October becomes ‘Mackintosh month’ as visitors and locals alike are invited to enjoy a programme of events with a focus on architecture, design, visual arts and crafts in the city where he lived and worked.

During October, a series of events and exhibitions will take place across the main Mackintosh attractions, buildings and collections in and around Glasgow.

From walks, workshops and exhibitions to performances and talks, events are designed for all ages, to appeal to those who know nothing about Mackintosh, as well as established aficionados.
