Doors Open Days East Renfrewshire 2016

On 10 and 11 September 2016, at various locations across East Renfrewshire, Doors Open Days give you free access to lots of fascinating buildings across East Renfrewshire!

The event offers the people an opportunity to visit buildings and sites in both public and private ownership that would not normally be open to the public. Entry to all buildings is free and within certain buildings, refreshments, guided tours and exhibitions will be available. Opening their doors to the public on the two days will be various buildings – churches, a synagogue, a fire station, theatres – please click here for full list of buildings.

Environment convener Councillor Vincent Waters said: “The ever popular Doors Open Days gives people a rare opportunity to look around some buildings otherwise not open to the public. For example we have some splendid old churches in East Renfrewshire that are well worth a visit.
“And for something a little different you can take a guided walk around Cathcart cemetery to see gothic tombs, Egyptian temples, and Greek, Romanesque and art-nouveau designs.”
