    Leave a Comment

    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.

    Well that’s what our Senior’s group think anyway. Here they are taking a well earned break from their emotional WWI Radio Drama, in preparation for their next project. “Music of My Years”.

    The group plan to record their own versions of various songs that play significant parts in their lives.

  3. Clydeside Story – 1 year on…

    Leave a Comment

    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
    Contact: Angela on 0141 445 1666

    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!”

  5. Much Ado about Govan

    “To be a well-favoured man is the gift of fortune; but to write and read comes by nature.”
    ― William ShakespeareMuch Ado About Nothing

    These kids know this all too well and can write and read their adaptation of Much Ado as well as any man. This is the gang hard at it, rehearsing, and getting ready to crew.

    Our very own Lyndsey Logue took these magnificent pictures.

    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.

    Part Two: Off to War. Coming soon.
