I would also pay to get to see the central...would be worth it...

I'm more annoyed that the process let us down than actually not getting any tickets.
At least next year we might have a better chance of seeing it...

Barrowlands concert venue have one on 21st September.

Could be interesting, but I think it's part of a book launch about the history of the ballroom so not sure if you need to attend an all day event.

Can imagine - Hoping to get booked for it as missed it last year due to holidays.

a friend was lucky and got on the central station one. He said it was fantastic and included a walk on the roof part. Anyway he said the tour guide had indicated that because of the demand they are looking to arrange these tours of central on a more regular basis so hopefully we donít need to wait for doors open day 2014.

I missed Central but managed to get tickets for the Wellpark brewery and a trip up one of the Gallowgate twins. I also went to the Barrowlands ball room and a talk on the history of Gallowgate pubs. The brewery was fantastic a great tour guide, very informative and the staff couldnít have been friendlier. I really enjoyed that one and the free beer was not bad either.

The talk on the history of Gallowgate pubs was great I learned a good few things I would have been completely unaware off. I heard some great stories of the area and what it must have been like in the past. The chap holding the talk I believe is a very well known pub historian (Im embarrassed that I canít recall his name) and was a fountain of knowledge and did a grand job.  

The barrowlands ballroom did have a book launch on the go but nothing major. We got in early so it was a bit quieter itís my favourite music venue but I have never been in when I have not been seeing a band. I didnít realise it but the missus pointed out that I had walked into the ballroom and swung a left as you go in the door heading straight towards where they sell canís of lager at gigs, auto pilot. It was great to get up on the stage and again the people running it were fantastic I had a right blether about the gigs I have seen there and what they have seen there over the years. The back stairwells are also covered in band tour posters and I spotted a few crackers in that lot.

Going up the high-rise at Whitevale street was a bit sad really. The guy taking us up to the top floor was with GHA and was saying we would be the last members of the public up there as they are getting gutted to be pulled down. It was about as authentic as you could get though, one lift had broken down with someone stuck in it. The one we got in skipped a floor and wouldnít count past 17 even thought we were going to the top. The view is fantastic

Hope everyone is aware of the Wee Doors Open Day, taking place on the 23rd of July this year, to mark the Commonwealth Games.
