Maggie’s all set for culture crawl in city
It is the big, vibrant city right on our doorstep.
Now cancer support charity Maggie’s is giving the people of Lanarkshire the chance to see Glasgow in a new light.
Returning for its third year, and sponsored once again by Brodies LLP, Maggie’s Culture Crawl is scheduled to take place on Friday, September 28.
The walk will include exclusive night-time access to cultural icons including the Dockyard Social, The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons and finish with a fantastic show at The Britannia Panoptican Theatre.
‘Crawlers’ will also view exhibits from artists Zoe Law and Lucy Porter, as well as sample street food and share a cheeky dram at the Clydeside Distillery along the way.
Lorrie Forsyth, centre head of Maggie’s Lanarkshire, said: “Discovering our city as the sun sets and taking in its cultural gems is becoming a calendar highlight.
“As a charity Maggie’s relies on donations to continue to develop our unique, high quality programme of support.
“I really hope the community gets behind this event to help us support as many people living with cancer across Lanarkshire.”
