Events

From hands-on workshops to community film screenings, public lectures to national exhibitions, find out what’s on with Scotland's Urban Past.

We run regular hands-on training workshops across the country for community projects and youth groups who are taking the lead in exploring and celebrating the history our towns and cities through Scotland’s Urban Past (SUP) projects.
