The Naked Truth

26 May 2016

The Naked Truth 26-28 May 2016 7:30pm £18.00 / £16.00 conc Hamilton Town House

The Naked Truth

It's a Women Thing

Real Women, Real Lives

Tailor-made for Women, The Naked Truth is the hit comedy Play from Dave Simpson, the writer of the smash-hit comedy "Girls Night Out".

Now on its 6th fantastic tour, this show has had people on their feet all over the UK. Set in a pole dancing class (the latest get-fit craze) 'The Naked Truth' is a brilliantly funny comedy about sisterhood. It's a women thing, as five very different women struggle hilariously to conquer pole dancing for an event to raise awareness and money for a breast cancer charity.

The Naked Truth is a poignant and uplifting comedy, a call to all women, and celebrating strength through adversity. It’s a Show for women, about women, that men absolutely must see (if they dare!).

“…Even more uplifting than a Playtex bra. Don’t miss it” The Public Reviews

"Better than marriage guidance" - Yorkshire Post

If you were touched by "Calendar Girls" and amused by the manoeuvres of "Stepping Out" you'll be splitting your sides and moved to tears by The Naked Truth.

Sisters are doing it for themselves!

Suitable For: Over 18’s only

Pits, Ponies, People and Stories Until Dec 2016 Low Parks Museum

Pits, ponies, people and stories


New exhibition is a mine of information

This extensive exhibition includes a reconstruction of a coal mine, recreated scenes of home and working life, plus a wealth of objects and information which has been created as a result of a two year project to involve the community in researching the local mining heritage of South Lanarkshire, backed by Heritage Lottery funding.

The exhibition looks at all aspects of life in mining communities from the harsh working conditions and major tragedies like the Blantyre Pit Disaster, to the social side of being part of a mining village, gala days and brass bands. The exhibition also features films and stories from the volunteers who took part in the Pits, Ponies, People and Stories project giving their memories of working in the mines or being part of mining family.

Specially commissioned banners, produced by local sewing groups, displayed on the walls of the exhibition galleries, acknowledge the part that mining banners played in the identity of collieries and the communities they represented.

The exhibition runs at Low Parks Museum until December 2016 and throughout its showing a number of events and activities linked to the exhibition are planned, including a gala day at the museum Saturday 14th May.

Please call Low Parks Museum 01698 452382 for further information.
