Throughout October 2015, the fourth annual Mackintosh Festival (formerly Creative Mackintosh Festival) celebrates the achievements of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Glasgow’s most famous architect, designer and artist.

October becomes ‘Mackintosh month’ as visitors and locals alike are invited to enjoy a programme of events with a focus on architecture, design, visual arts and crafts in the city where he lived and worked.

From Thursday 1st until Saturday 31st, a series of events and exhibitions will take place across the main Mackintosh attractions, buildings and collections in and around Glasgow.

From walks, workshops and exhibitions to performances and talks, events are designed for all ages, to appeal to those who know nothing about Mackintosh, as well as established aficionados. The programme will feature a range of formats with free exhibitions and workshops, ticketed tours and socialable evenings with food and drink.

We will be launching the full programme in August 2015. Until then, keep an eye on our social media for regular updates.
