There is no doubt what a lot of people will be doing this week-end – Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September. They’ll be knocking on doors that are specially open where they are invited in (usually at no cost!) to see what goes on in that place.
The magnificent Doors Open Day festival of Glasgow’s Built Heritage has more than 100 venues waiting for the visitors. Which doesn’t count the walking tours and talks which have been available throughout this week and the dozen allotments which will open their Gates on Doors Open Day weekend!
There are 16 new venues this year including the beautifully refurbished St Andrew’s Cathedral in Clyde Street. And there are free buses from George Square to Provan Hall in Easterhouse and a free bus service to Castlemilk Stables thanks to Cassiltoun Housing Association whose offices are in the complex.
There will be a host of walks on both Saturday and Sunday which enable experts to tell the stories of the places on that route. Check the website for up-to-the-minutes details: www.glasgowdoorsopenday.com
And don’t forget your camera for the photographic competition as well as the Passport competition for everyone under 16.
