Haud the Bus Aug 07, 2018

Hop on board the Haud the Bus Walking Tour and experience some of what Gorbals has to offer!

This event is a local tie in to the cultural activity for the European Championships. Explore all of the 'bus stops' on the Haud the Bus tour to find out more about local organisations, groups, and projects.

Kicking off at 1pm, you can grab a route map from any of the 18 'bus stop' stalls in the area. Key points across the area for pick up include The Barn in Laurieston, the Rose Garden, the Coolest Garden at St Francis Centre, New Gorbals Housing Association on Crown Street and the Southern Necropolis on Caledonia Road.

There are 18 of these hand crafted 'bus stops' in total, each one unique to its owner and decorated to reflect their activities. Visit each in turn to find out more about what's on offer locally. Visit every stop for a stamp and you'll get a free goody bag once you reach stop 18!

Some bus stops will be having special performances or presentations during the day, which are listed below:

  • Givin' It Laldie choir performances (1 Errol Gardens): 13:00, 13:30, 14:00, 14:30, 15:00, 15:30.
