Glasgow City Heritage Trust is excited to be teaming up with Lost Glasgow, to present an exhibition devoted to the documentation, discussion and appreciation of Glasgow’s changing architecture and its community throughout the last few centuries.

The exhibition is on from Thursday 29 June until Thursday 31 August 2017 at the Glasgow City Heritage Trust, 54 Bell Street, Glasgow G1 1LQ. Admission is FREE but please visit the Glasgow City Heritage Trust website for details of opening times.

Since launching in 2014, the Lost Glasgow Facebook page has attracted a 135k-strong global following. The site, which uses archive photographs to spark stories, memories, and debate about the city, its buildings, its people, and its ever-evolving history and future, was launched off the back of the successful Lost Edinburgh site.

The exhibition will cover everything from the majestic to the mundane, from the city’s great buildings to its more humble corners, from the tenement to the townhouse, from the great and the good, to the ‘common old workin’ man (and woman). The bottom line is, we love Glasgow, and the tales of our city. And everybody in Glasgow loves to hear a good story.

Join in, be a curator and rearrange our exhibition, then leave a comment about the pictures you connect with the most.

At the end of March four brave members of the Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) and De’ils On Wheels team Braved the Shave by getting their heads shaved to raise funds for DRCET and the Beatson Cancer Charity.

Neil, Liz, Paul and Sarah went under the clippers on Thursday 30 March 2017 to raise funds for these two great Glasgow based charities.

The response to the fundraiser has been totally overwhelming and we have finally collected all the sponsorship money and we raised a staggering £6937 – who would have thought a wee bit of hair could have raised so much!

So a massive thanks to Lu at Battlefield Barbers for amazing clipper control; to May, Marie and Amanda and all the team at Heart of Scotstoun for being fantastic hosts and for selling so many cakes; to everyone that baked something for us on the day; to everyone that came along to cheer us on; a huge thanks to Paul, Liz and Sarah for helping to turn my madcap idea into a reality and going above and beyond; and of course to everyone that sponsored us!

A huge, huge, huge thank you for everyone that supported us – it is very much appreciated!

We will be arranging a wee photo shoot to hand over a big cheque to the Beatson Cancer Charity soon so will be back in touch soon about that!

Neil, Liz, Paul and Sarah!

We tweeted about this too… @drcet @deilsonwheels #BraveTheShave #BigHeidShave @beatson_charity

Unfortunately the organisers have had to cancel this event due to the weather forecast for strong winds and even stronger gusts which are well above acceptable limits for the safe use of inflatables (bouncy castles etc) and borderline acceptable limits for the safe use of open fronted marquees. It is hoped the event will be re-organised for later in the year.
