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.
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.
We hold a creative planning and information workshop in January where we share our plans for the year's theme and workshop ideas around how to engage with it. This is also a chance to meet other participants and to get further insight into what taking part involves.
To register your interest please fill in the form at the right of this page and we will get in touch with further information, a booking link for the January workshop when it is live, and application forms in February.
To find out more about the festival you can visit our about page, or take a look at the 2017 programme. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch.
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.
'We found the experience enjoyable and encouraging. Being volunteers on a project can be difficult and it's easy to get disheartened. The success of our Doors Open Days event has encouraged us to keep going with the next step in our restoration project.'
