What does Maryhill mean to you? Become a curator for the day and show us!

Learn how a museum works, help us conserve our collection, have a go at photographing objects or try writing a museum label! Yours could be picked to be part of our first ever community pop up museum right here in Maryhill Burgh Halls!

Why not bring along an object or a photograph that you think sums up a piece of Maryhill history - a matchbox from Bryant and May or a photo of you dolled up to go to the dancin in the 70s? Its all part of our community history and we want to show it off!

You'll also get a chance to see the objects in our collection and have a say in how they are displayed. 

This is a drop in event so come along any time. Suitable for ages 5+.

Hands on History: Going to the Pictures

Hands on History: Going to the Pictures

Do you remember the first film you ever saw in the pictures? Or have memories of the beautiful cinemas that used to exist in Maryhill and across Glasgow? If so, we have a treat for you!

In this session we will look at some original artefacts from the golden age of cinema and you can see some photos of cinemas in their heyday. Bring along your own photos or tickets to jog your memory and share with others. This event will also be the first meeting of the Maryhill History Group so stick around after for a chat and a cup of tea to find out more. 

This is a free drop in session, suitable for all ages, so you can come whenever you like!

Join us for the first of our Monday Memories sessions at Maryhill Burgh Halls. A monthly social group to have a cup of tea and a biscuit and talk about our shared history.

This month we are 'going to the pictures' and have a variety of objects and photographs relating to the heyday of silver screen.

Light refreshments will be served.
