Glasgow’s annual Maker Faire is coming to the Clyde

Media Centre

A ‘Carnival on the Clyde’ that spills out from the iconic Tall Ship at the Riverside Museum. The River Clyde has always played an important role in the history of Glasgow.

It is often said, “Glasgow made the Clyde, and the Clyde made Glasgow”.
