One Singer One Song

 

By Cat Harvey
Directed by Andrew Agnew

Starring:
Glasgow legend May Miller
River City's Tom Urie
B.G.T's Edward Reid
Clyde 1's Cat Harvey
And introducing Stephanie Fulton

A hilarious new comedy about the dysfunctional stars of a chaotic Glaswegian Entertainment agency all fighting to land the once in a life-time gig of their careers.

Crystal Scotland runs the Wee Ratbag Entertainment Agency, a talent company specialising in flamboyant has-beens and desperate wannabes.

Astonishingly she's landed a life-changing TV slot to fill, but there's only time for ONE SINGER ONE SONG.

June Tennant (May Miller) is Queen of the scene and expects it, however, arch-nemesis Dougal Diamond (Edward Reid) reckons it's his moment to shine and is prepared to do whatever it takes.

Inspired by the spirit of Elvis, Musician Johnny Nashville and Social Media Influencer Bendy Britney also fancy their chances.

A freak cosmic incident turns their worlds upside down and they're forced to examine their own motives and personalities in the most unexpected and funniest of ways.

An unashamedly fanciful tale of music, rivalries, self-discovery and fabulousness.

Crammed full of sing-a-long hits, funky dancing and side-splitting laughs this is pure joyful escapism.

So who lands the big gig? Well, you'll have to come and see.....

Stand Together

 

Library open hours are 10:00am-5:00pm Mon-Sat and 12:00pm-5:00pm Sun.

This year marked the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau on 27 January.

Six million Jewish men, women and children died at the brutal hands of the Nazis and their collaborators. The Nazis persecution continued murdering countless others who did not conform or fit with the extreme Nazi ideology.

Three South Lanarkshire Secondary Schools, Calderglen High, St John Ogilvie High and Biggar High have created thought provoking and powerful work in response to this anniversary under the title of the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust’s theme for this important year, Stand Together.  Urging us all to Stand Together against prejudice and hate.


WW100 Scotland

Location: Low Parks Museum

Time: 10:00 - 17:00

Cost: Free admission

WW100 Scotland 27 January - 27 February 2020

The One hundred stories of Scotland’s WW1 logo

 

Museum opening hours are 10:00am-5:00pm Mon-Sat, and 12:00pm-5:00pm Sun.

One hundred stories of Scotland’s WW1 - told through the perspective of 100 young artists - feature in an innovative new installation at Low Parks Museum.

Entitled “What Do We Learn From All This?” the exhibition, commissioned by the Scottish Government, delivered by research and design collective Lateral North and facilitated by the Scottish Print Network, uses traditional print making techniques combined with innovative technology.  It displays the matrices used to develop each of the artists’ 100 unique prints on wooden plinths arranged in a map of Scotland.  Augmented reality technology enables visitors to explore each of the stories in detail with an iPad.

From individual acts of valour on the battlefield to naval tragedies off Scotland’s coast, from the thousands of workers filling factories at home to the brave members of the Scottish Women’s Hospitals at the Western Front, from innovations in areas such as surgery and aviation to the enduring work of poets and artists in the trenches, the project takes in a wide range of stories and subjects that will resonate throughout Scotland.

Five print studios in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness, with artists from 14 years of age upwards, contributed to the project which marks the culmination of Scotland’s WW1 centenary programme.

Fiona Hyslop, Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Tourism and External Affairs, said:

“The ‘What Do We Learn From All This?’ project is a fitting culmination to the WW100 Scotland commemorations, allowing young people from across Scotland to tell the stories of World War One through the medium of print. It is particularly appropriate that the artworks harness traditional print-making techniques with augmented reality, bringing together old and new.

“World War One affected every village, town and city in Scotland, touching the lives of millions. It is important that we continue to remember the stories of bravery and sacrifice and to ensure they are passed on. I hope that many people will visit to see the installation and reflect on the artworks and the stories behind them.” 

Tom Smith, director at Lateral North, said:

“We have been working with students from across Scotland to creatively interpret people and place based stories of the First World War.  Working with Solius Heritage and the Scottish Print Network, we have brought over 100 artworks together in the form of an abstract map of Scotland.  These stories are revealed in augmented reality bringing the Century old stories into the present day."

The project was delivered with support from Edinburgh Printmakers, Dundee Contemporary Arts, Glasgow Print Studio, Highland Print Studio and Peacock Print Studio in Aberdeen.
