Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival is an annual event celebrating the city’s architecture, culture and heritage.

Each September they bring together dozens of participants who throw open the doors of over 100 historic buildings, theatres, museum stores, factories, studios, breweries & more, across the city, to the public, for free.

The festival has been organised by Glasgow Building Preservation Trust since it began in 1990 as part of the City of Culture celebrations.

Glasgow Doors Open Days is the largest of a family of Doors Open Days events happening across Scotland throughout September, coordinated nationally by the Scottish Civic Trust and supported by Historic Environment Scotland. Doors Open Days form part of Scotland’s contribution to European Heritage Days and are also part of the Festival of Architecture, Scotland’s celebration of Architecture coordinated by the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland and taking place throughout Scotland in September. Each year the festival is made possible thanks to a pool of sponsors and donors including the Glasgow City Council.

We were tasked to created a CMS platform in which participants can log their information about their event which would then automatically be populated to the website, saving the organisers from manually inputting information. We need then collaborated with other creatives to design and build their fresh new website.
