Govan Mural Trail walking tours

Saturday 12 August, 2023

The Govan Mural Trail is a magical musical journey round some of the area’s open air art, created by Yardworks street art studio.

Glasgow Life Artists in Communities The Glasgow Barons asked local singer-songwriters to create new songs about each mural, and in these guided tours you too can help bring the places and stories of Govan to life.

Tours are free but must be booked in advance:

Wed 26 July 2pm
Sat 29 July 11am
Wed 2 August 2pm
Sat 5 August 11am
Wed 9 August 2pm
Sat 12 August 11am

The meeting point for each tour is the Mary Barbour Statue at Govan Subway.
Tours are 1.5 hours long.
