Tell us your Stories of the City
We’ve all been spending more time in our own neighbourhoods in recent months, so for this year’s Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival we want you to share with us what you’ve discovered in your local area!
Have you noticed an unusual old building and wondered what it was? Or is there a local building or landmark you’re particularly fond of? Take a photo and post it on social media using the hashtags #StoriesOfTheCity and #GlasgowHeritage. Or you can find us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram @GlasgowHeritage. Give us the location and anything you know about it. Who lived there? What did it used to be? Is there an unusual story about it? Tell us your memories!
BE A BUILDING DETECTIVE
If there’s a building you would like to know more about, post your photos of it to our social media pages and we’ll see what we can discover about it!
PHOTOS MAKE PRIZES!
As well as the chance for your images to be featured on our social media, there will also be a prize for the best story about a building. There’s no need for fancy camera equipment, your phone camera will do. Whilst looking at buildings please remember to keep safe and take care. Do not trespass on private property. If you would like to find out more about a building yourself, check out our ‘Building Detective’ blog below.
If you’re planning to get out and about for Doors Open Days (whilst adhering to current government guidelines regarding Covid-19 of course) and are looking for some inspiration, check out the resources below for links to our Ghost Signs of Glasgow maps and Kids Heritage Trails as well as some blogs on our favourite Glasgow buildings!
