Glasgow Green Film Night

7pm, Thursday 7 November 2019

The Washing Green near Templeton’s Carpet Factory c1950

Glasgow Green is Scotland’s oldest public park and not surprisingly, there are many songs, poems and stories about it.

On this special evening, we will be looking at films supplied by the National Library of Scotland’s Moving Image Archive at the Kelvin Hall. These include two full- length short films: From Glasgow Green to Bendigo (1961, on the world-wide operation of Templeton Carpets) and The Green of Glasgow (1962, produced for the Schools Museum Service and used as a teaching aid on the history of the Green up until the 1990s.)

Admission is free, so bring your popcorn and enjoy a great Glasgow night out!

Duration: 90 minutes
