Get involved in some birthday weekend fun from Sat 5–Mon 7 June at the Hill House – don a ‘Macktastic’ outfit for a double celebration.

The ever-creative Hill House team are asking visitors to get involved in some birthday weekend fun from Saturday 5–Monday 7 June, with an invitation to don their finery for a double celebration: Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s 153rd birthday and the 2nd anniversary of the opening of the Hill House Box.

Taylah Egbers, Visitor Services Supervisor at the Hill House said: ‘On 7 June, we have a lot to celebrate at the Hill House - not only is it 2 years since we officially opened our protective Box, but we also mark Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s 153rd birthday.

‘We are asking all our visitors to join us in celebration by wearing their most Macktastic outfit to the site! From 5 to 7 June, we want to see fabulous mask moustaches, glamorous hats, artistic-inspired clothing ... the works!

‘The Mackintosh style is world-famous, so we can’t wait to see the creative outfits our visitors put together for this special occasion, at a place that so many people love.’

Visitors who come dressed up will receive a 10% discount in the property’s award-winning shop.

Over the weekend, the Glasgow Book Fairies will also be visiting with a lovingly prepared Mackintosh-themed book drop. The Glasgow Book Fairies are magical creatures who selflessly give stories to others and expect nothing in return. Our visitors will simply take a book marked by the fairies, read it and leave it for the next person to enjoy.

The Hill House is open daily - advance booking is essential.
