Participating in Glasgow Doors Open Days by opening a building or putting on an event is easy. Whether you think you'd like to open your building to visitors, or you have a fully planned event you'd like to put on, we are here to help you make it happen.
Take a look at our Participant Information booklet on our resources page, for more information about what taking part involves.
Participants take part for different reasons, from wanting to raise the profile of their building or organisation, to wanting to attract new members to doing it purely for fun!
With the event attracting a large audience each year, the festival is a fantastic opportunity to engage with new people.

Volunteers are a vital part of Glasgow Doors Open Days, and without their help it would not be possible to deliver the programme. Whilst each venue or event participant deliver their own events with the help of volunteers, there is also a core team working with GBPT year-round, processing applications, photographing buildings, proofing brochure copy, marketing and helping to deliver events during festival week.
If you are interested in volunteering with GBPT, or you'd like to help at one of our participating venues, please get in touch via the adjacent form and include some information about yourself, your experience and what you'd be interested in being involved with. You can also contact us via this form if you'd like to find out more about our volunteering opportunities.
