Officially opened by Robert Owen on 1st January 1816, the Institute for the Formation of Character building at New Lanark is celebrating its Bicentenary this year. Built for Learning and Leisure, many of the Millworkers who lived at New Lanark & within the surrounding area enjoyed leisure activities within this building such as dancing, games and musical concerts.
