Welcome to four new researchers who joined the Fairfield Heritage Project at the end of March.  Through the Government sponsored Community Jobs Fund we have been able to offer Dan, Martin and Marianne – all history graduates – the chance to apply their research skills to exhibition interpretation.  Their posts which will run for six months also offer an opportunity to learn about documenting and caring for a collection and to promote the project through outreach work. MeanwhileAbigail – the fourth member of our research team – has already made a significant contribution to the project as a volunteer helping to develop an education resource for primary schools. Welcome aboard everyone!

Between the mid-nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the heyday of shipbuilding on the Clyde, Govan was at the centre of the industry.

Whatever your age or experience we can offer a range of learning opportunities. From education groups to community visits.

We are looking for volunteers. To find out more about the huge variety of opportunities to support us, go to Get Involved in the Heritage site.

There's lots going on at Fairfield. Find out what's on via our EVENTS section.

Once described as the jewel in the crown of Govan, the restored building provides a magnificent venue for all for all kinds of events.
