Now On 

Fred A.Farrell: From Homefront to Frontline in WW1

Through powerful sketches and watercolours, this new exhibition showcases the work of war artist Fred A. Farrell. Illustrating life in France and Flanders in 1917 and 1918, he also drew the home effort in Glasgow’s munitions factories, shipyards and engineering works. In 1920, his finished works were displayed in Glasgow City Chambers and this is the first time many of these works have been on display since that time.​ Find out more here

This exhibition runs from Friday 30 May - Sunday 23 November 

Coming Soon

Our Games 

The "Our Games" exhibition will chart the experiences of volunteers in the city this summer. The exhibition will tour three community centres before coming to the People's Palace. We will have more information soon, but in the meantime, take a look at our Photo Competition here.
