Since our 2023 season of scheduled Saturday tours ended we’ve been busy with plans for our upcoming events in January. Due to popular demand we’re re-running our hugely successful Shipyard Bards, Tall Tales and Dinner event in conjunction with our partners, Mharsanta Restaurant & Bar. If you’re looking for a memorable Christmas gift this event makes for a splendid evening out, especially for those connected to the shipyards, or music enthusiasts keen to delve into Glasgow’s rich history.
