Public Activities

A range of heritage-based community activities will be delivered in parallel to the construction works. There will be a strong emphasis on Traditional Building Skills training through a series of talks, demonstrations and special exhibition. Other events include ‘house history’ workshops, project discovery days, including hard-hat tours of the restoration process and ‘back in time experiences’, where visitors will explore life in the 18th century cotton mill village.

Join in with our FREE public events as part of this exciting project and the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design & the Festival of Architecture 2016. Sign up for the New Lanark e-newsletter to be the first to hear the latest news & opportunities.
