Lad O' Pairts: Life on Pollok Estate

Giffnock Library

Thursday 30 May, 3pm - 4pm

We are delighted to be welcoming Lucy Donnell from the National Trust for Scotland to present a talk to accompany a mobile exhibition display from Pollok House.

The Lad o' Pairts, an exhibition funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, will reintroduce Sir John Stirling Maxwell to the people of Glasgow and will be in Eastwood Theatre Gallery from Thursday 2nd May and then Giffnock Library from Sat 25th May until Sat 1st June.

Lucy says: "As part of the research carried out for the Lad o' Pairts exhibition, accounts from people with memories of Sir John Stirling Maxwell and life on the estate were recorded. To complement the exhibition, I'd like to share some of the information and stories we have gathered. I hope to help paint a picture of what life was like for workers and their families living on the estate during Sir John's lifetime."

Tea & coffee will be available from 2.30pm
