The centenary birthday of Edwin Morgan is bringing a year-long celebration to Glasgow city centre.

Morgan, who died in 2010, was Scotland's first Makar and on the 27th of April will be marked as the day that would have been his 100th birthday.

Born in Glasgow, Morgan studied in Glasgow University and later became a lecturer there. He released twenty-five volumes of poetry throughout his lifetime, including those which outlined his sexuality as a gay man living in Glasgow.

This week launched the celebration calendar.

The Mitchell Library and GOMA will have a Symposium on the 17th of October, and the Tron Theatre will have 'high man pen meander', a promenade show about and around the Tron Theatre accompanied by Morgan's voice and lyrics.

Street Level Photoworks will also exhibit a short digital film celebrating Morgan throughout January to March 2021.
