Now in its third year, join a unique city trail down High Street, following the story of Gaelic Glasgow, past and present, through song, sound and installation.

Encounter the funny tails of Saltmarket, the Black Bull Inn and Tron Prison. Experience the industrial soundscapes of the past and enjoy the surviving stories of Gaelic Glasgow through songs, performance, poetry and folklore.  A great event for Gaelic speakers and non-speakers alike.

As this is a walking tour, patrons should wear suitable footwear and be prepared for the weather of the day. The event will start at 3pm and  take up to 2 hours. It will include stoppages and rests, with refreshments along the way. It will culminate in a traditional ceilidh of music and stories, in the Tron Theatre.

Ages 18+
