Saturday – an audio guide


Calton Burial Ground is the memorial cemetery to six local workers killed by troops during the 1787 Calton Weavers Strike – the earliest major industrial dispute in Scottish history. It sits on Abercromby Street, formerly known as ‘Witch Loan’, as the road was believed to be bewitched.

‘Saturday’ originated as a lecture and screening during Gi 2016, which explored the relationship between popular uprisings and the witch scares. For Glasgow International 2018, the work has been re-imagined as an audio guide to the burial ground itself.
