Talk: Glasgow’s Sporting Heritage

Wednesday 1st August | 6-8pm | 54 Bell Street

In August Glasgow will co-host the inaugural European Championships. Around 4,500 athletes will descend on the city to  compete in this multi-sport event which includes aquatics, cycling, gymnastics, rowing, triathlon and golf.

Glasgow is no slouch when it comes to sport, and our sporting heritage runs deep. Ingrid Shearer, from Northlight Heritage, will tell us more about our city’s historic sporting grounds,  buildings and sportscapes. Game on!
