Ongoing creative projects about Govan's hidden histories Celebrating Govan's heritage, women's roles in protest movements, and the life and work of Isabella Elder
As 2016 draws to a close, Govan’s Hidden Histories would like to wish you all a very, very happy holidays! We’d like to take this opportunity to share a couple of snaps from recent events where we’ve had a chance to launch our new graphic novel – the Quest for the 13 Treasures of Govan & Glasgow!
We had the honour of having long-time supporter, and general fountain of medieval knowledge, Tim Clarkson deliver a talk on Scotland’s Merlin, and introduce his recently published ‘Scotland’s Merlin; A Medieval Legend and its Dark Age Origins’. We were also joined by our fabulously talented Quest artist and writer Pete Renshaw, as well as original GHH team member, whose research and vision inspired the Quest, Tam McGarvey. It was a fantastic event to be able to share the result of much hard work by many. Our thanks to the Govan Heritage Trust for allowing us to host this event at Govan Old Church.
We also had a fantastic time at the recent Govan Loves Christmas event. There was a bounty of free, fun and festive activities and treats for the local community. We thoroughly enjoyed taking part and would like to give a big thank you and well done to Govan Housing Association and everyone else who brought this fantastic evening together. We were joined there by Merlin who helped us spread some magical Christmas cheer, as well enlisting a whole crop of young people to join the Quest for the 13 Treasures of Govan & Glasgow! After making their solemn oath to join the Quest and save the kingdom, the young adventurers headed round to Govan Old Church, home to the amazing Govan Stones, to collect their graphic novels and begin the Quest!
