Recycling Old Glasgow
Gordon Urquhart, Architectural Historian
Monday 26 March 2018

Lecture starts at 7.30pm; doors open at 7pm

Tickets at the door £5 (Friends £4) include tea/coffee and biscuits


Gordon Urquhart looks at how the city developed a piecemeal and often misguided approach to architectural conservation over the past 200 years, often preferring to retain a fragment or relic of an important old building rather than repairing it or finding a new use.

We are very grateful to Gordon who stepped in at short notice to give this lecture, when the booked speaker let us down.
