*SOLD OUT* Lost Glasgow – The Ones That Got Away

Wednesday 9th August 2017 | 6.30 – 8.30pm | 54 Bell Street

Since launching in 2014, the Lost Glasgow Facebook page has attracted a 135,000-strong global following. The site, which uses archive photographs to spark stories, memories, and debate about the city,  its buildings, its people, and its ever-evolving history and future, was launched off the back of the successful Lost Edinburgh site.

Following Norry’s hugely successful talk for us last year, join us for an evening of heritage, reminiscence and storytelling with the driving force of Lost Glasgow. Norry will regale us with his usual mixture of facts, stories, jokes, personal reminiscence and reveal some of the stories we couldn’t fit in the exhibition.  We will then open up the second half of the evening, in true Lost Glasgow style, to images submitted by the audience.

Bring a historic photo of the city along, and the story that goes with it, and we’ll look at as many as possible – Antiques Roadshow style!
