Throughout October 2018, the seventh annual Mackintosh Festival will celebrate the achievements of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Glasgow’s most famous architect, designer and artist. 2018 is the 150th anniversary of Mackintosh's birth and there will be special events taking part in Glasgow Mackintosh venues in and around Glasgow. The full programme of events will be launched in August 2018.

October becomes ‘Mackintosh month’ as visitors and locals alike are invited to enjoy a programme of events in Glasgow Mackintosh venues with a focus on architecture, design, visual arts and crafts in the city where he lived and worked. In 2018, we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Mackintosh's birth. 

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 features a range of formats with free exhibitions and workshops and ticketed tours.
