Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.
Well… in my book, these guys are all of the above! Our Much Ado about Govan gang have been working incredibly hard getting ready for their shoot which starts this coming Monday!! Aaaaaargh! Where did the time go? Here they are rehearsing, organising costumes and art and generally working their little cotton socks off.
With just a week to go until the screening of Clydeside Story at the Pearce Institute (from 7pm on Tues 31st March), here’s a wee flashback to the trailer for the event. All welcome…hope to see you next week!
We can’t believe it’s almost a full year since the multimedia extravaganza, Clydeside Story, was performed at the Harland and Wolff Shed in Govan. As part of the project we followed the participants on their journey, filming their highs and lows, as they prepared and rehearsed for the final show. “Clydeside Story – the Movie” was premiered at the BBC “Commonwealth at the Quay” Festival in July 2014.
For the Glasgow Youth Arts Festival, we will be celebrating this landmark anniversary with the second public screening of “Clydeside Story – the Movie”. Were you, or someone you knew, in the show? Were you in the audience? Or did you miss it last year? Well, we’d like to invite you to join us as we look back on the year with an evening of music, film and a few surprises!!
When: Tuesday 31st March – 7pm – 9pm
Where: The Pearce Institute, 840-860 Govan Road, G51 3UU

Well actually… it was about Twenty quid for plastic bags, bamboo canes, tape and string…but the boys from our Betweeners group did make their own set of wings and had tremendous fun in the process, all ready for the spring time winds. (Look out Lyndsey, you may get blown away!)
You can see them here, with their fists holding tight… to the strings of their kites.
All together now “Oh Oh Oh, Lets Go Fly a Kite, Up to the Highest Heights!”
Our Seniors Film and Media group at their first recording session of “The Last Waltz”.
Written by the group, this is the story of five young Govan friends – Frank, Harry, Robert, Billy and Johnny – and their families, as they go off to war. The group’s performance of these characters was not only electric but incredibly moving.
Thanks to George Henry and the boys from Glasgow Clyde College for their patience in recording the session.
