Glasgow Doors Open Day is a free festival taking place on the 15th and 16th September 2012 – the 23rd year that Glasgow has hosted the event. It provides a great chance for Glaswegians to become tourists in their own city for a day.
This fantastic free event is Glasgow’s way of celebrating its buildings, its streets, its parks and its people – in short, itself! There are tours, walks, talks, seminars and exhibitions in addition to more than 100 buildings being open to let visitors come and get to know Glasgow a little better.
A number of locations in Dennistoun feature amongst the extensive programme of events, such as:
- Wellpark Brewery (Tennent Caledonian) – The home of Tennents Lager, and the largest brewery site in Scotland;
- Dennistoun – The story of a grand design for a middle class suberb & its communities extraordinary variety;
- Historic Guided Walk of Dennistoun – Hosted by Dennistoun Conservation Society;
- Glasgow Necropolis – Glasgow’s victorian cemetery, literally a city of the dead, hosted by Friends of Glasgow Necropolis.
