SGS have arranged for a private guided tour of the current exhibition telling the story of the Dumbarton glassworks. This visit is open to SGS members and friends. There is no charge. Meet in the Cafe at 10.30 for a chat. There will be a tour of the exhibition at 10.45 am and 11.45 am, and also the opportunity to see the redevelopment work at the museum/town hall, including the pool area at the rear of the complex. There will be time for a chat and a catch up over the afternoon. If you would like to book a place please email – Exhibitions Officer, Trish Robins at firstname.lastname@example.org and let Trish know which tour time is more convenient for you.
The museum is also hosting an Audience with Alec Galloway that afternoon from 1.00 pm – 3.00 pm on site so if any of you would like to attend that as well you can book through the museum – tickets are £8, book them on 0141 562 2400.

Come along and meet other glass enthusiasts and see the story of the Dumbarton families connected with the local glass works.
There is on street parking, a local train station at Clydebank and a cafe selling great home-made soup, sandwiches, cakes and a range of beverages.
