Digi Doors Open Roundup 7: Tenement Talks

Winter is coming...protect your home with this week's edition of #DigiDoorsOpenRoundup!

The doors may have closed on #DigiDoorsOpen this year, but that doesn't mean that the fun has to stop! Each week we will be creating a themed roundup of our digital resources so that you can enjoy a virtual day out from home. 

In honour of The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings' (SPAB) National Maintenance Week, this week's theme is building maintenance. SPAB's annual campaign gives us all the gentle nudge we need to take better care of our homes, especially as winter begins to close in.

During Doors Open Days 2020 we invited you to attend Under One Roof's live 'Tenement Talks' to learn from the leading maintenance experts in tenement care. Do not fret if you missed them, we have recordings of each live event for you to watch at your leisure!

This week's venues cover Aberdeen, Argyll and Bute, Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Highlands!​
