Event description

Description


As the nation commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, we would like to welcome you to join us for an evening of community reflections about the experiences of Langside residents during and after the Great War.

We have been researching the individual stories of a small number of people who lived in our neighbourhood and walked our streets during these years of horrific industrial scale warfare overseas and tremendous social change at home.

With a mixture of presentations, music and poetry our event will share some of the Langside wartime experiences we have uncovered including:-

  • Who were the people behind the names on our war memorial?
  • The role and experiences of nurses
  • The war effort at home and local industry
  • Social change and suffrage in the southside
  • Conflict and conscientioius objectors

Places are free but limited so please book here to secure your place.

Please come along from 6.45pm to be seated in time for the programme start at 7pm
