Glasgow City Heritage Trust are thrilled to announce that this spring they will be hosting the Eastern Ground exhibition.  The Eastern Ground project saw the creation of six stunning handmade garments which celebrate the heritage and people of the East End. Designed by bespoke tailor Alis le May, each costume was inspired by one of the area’s historic buildings.

Following on from the original exhibition, held at Strangefield in Dalmarnock, they are delighted to now present a selection of the garments on display at their city centre offices.
