Door Open Day 2016

Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival is an annual event taking place across the city during the third week of September. Buildings open their doors and give free access to the public in order to showcase the city’s built environment, architecture and heritage. As well as open access to buildings, the week-long programme also includes bookable walks, tours, talks, special events and a dedicated children’s programme.

Glasgow City Heritage Trust will be holding two stalls during Doors Open Day. Come along to St. Andrews in the Square (10am-2pm) to discover what GCHT actually do, or pop along to the Lighthouse to learn more about traditional skills and materials.
