Event Details

Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust is delighted to host the "Lost Glasgow - More Than Just Memories" exhibition from 27th November 2017 until 27th February 2018, on loan from Glasgow City Heritage Trust. To celebrate local heritage and illuminate the exhibition’s themes, we are presenting a series of events which delve into Glasgow’s dynamic history.

Join us for an evening of discovery as we uncover old footage of Maryhill and celebrate local cultural heritage. Maryhill, once a vast green space quickly became an industrial heartland in the 19th century and this dynamic community has continued to change shape ever since. Footage on loan from Scotland's Moving Image Archive captures the changes in Maryhill in the 1960s, with snapshots of the Forth and Clyde Canal, the demolition of the Maryhill barracks and opening of the Wynford Estate. Watch history unfold in these silent films put to specially produced music created by Gerry Lyons.
