Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival Programme


Doors Open Days at University of Glasgow ARC is part of Explorathon Festival

Visitors to the festival can expect a programme of around 75 buildings open for visits, heritage trails, musical performances and even a Wall of Death! The festival will celebrate Glasgow as an amorphous, pulsing city, unbound and with a wilful personality of its own. The life of the City has been a long and varied one, and this year’s festival will be an opportunity to consider the moments that have influenced the past, those that have shaped the Glasgow of today, and new endeavours which will bring change tomorrow.
