Take a walk around old Govanhill, with local historian Bruce Downie, author of Loved and Lost: Govanhill’s Built Heritage. Discover how a few miner’s cottages became the heart of Industrial Glasgow, how an area known to some as No Man’s Land became the Burgh of Govanhill and one of the most vibrant suburbs of Glasgow. Learn the history and heritage of a remarkable community and the people from around the world who made it their home, the rifle regiment that became a football team, cinemas and skating rinks, churches, mosques, synagogues and swimming pools. Limited spaces, donations welcome.
