A gala concert organised by the Remember Mary Barbour Association to raise funds to create a memorial to one of Glasgow’s greatest heroes.

Mary Barbour led the successful rent strike of 1915 and went on to play a leading role in the labour movement as a Glasgow Councillor and energetic social reformer.

This concert will feature some of Scotland’s leading performers in a great night of entertainment, song and music celebrating her life and work. Full details to be announced soon.
