Heritage events programme, September – December 2017

We kick off the season with Glasgow Doors Open Day – the College will be open on Saturday, 16th September from 10am-4pm when there will be a chance to explore some of our beautiful rooms and see some fantastic items from our collections.

This year we are taking part in Museums at Night (27th October) and Book Week Scotland (29th November). For our Museums at Night event we’ll be completely transforming our College Hall into a unusual pop-up art installation celebrating the diversity of our College and its members – There’ll also be nibbles, music and a licensed bar. And for Book Week Scotland we’ll be treating you to some herbal remedies – perfect for anyone suffering from the sniffles during the long, winter nights!

We’re also delighted to welcome back to the College author ES Thomson (Beloved Poison, Dark Asylum) who will be joining us for a unique “lab” where we’ll be mashing up the latest digital visualisation techniques with historical medical fiction. For anyone who loves getting creative there will also be the opportunity to work with our artist in residence, Marianne MacRae, who will be hosting two amazing events looking at the work of Joseph Lister and Glasgow in the 19th century.

Finally, our popular Glasgow History of Medicine Seminars, in partnership with the University of Glasgow, start up again in October.

We hope you’ll be able to join us for some (or all!) of our fab events. You can download the complete programme of events here (8MB).

All our events are free to attend but please book in advance by emailing library@rcpsg.ac.uk as places are limited.
