Today, the leisure industry is one of the biggest global industries in the world – cinema, television, computer games, sport, print media, radio, the internet, mobile phones – they all play a huge part in our everyday lives. But it was all quite different 300 years ago when Glasgow began its enormous expansion.
By the late-1800s, it was one of the biggest, fastest growing cities in the world. The hundreds of thousands of people who made up that new community needed employment and houses, but they also needed entertainments to fill their increasing leisure time.
In this talk Fergus Sutherland will discuss the development of that industrial community and how they created so much of our modern leisure world.
