What’s On Wednesday

Fancy heading to the beach this weekend? If you do and the weather isn’t beach weather (and let’s face it , that’s pretty likely just now!) then why don’t you head down to the RSPB event that is being held in Kelvingrove on Saturday 27th April and Sunday 28th April between 1pm and 4pm?

Join them in their activities to discover the different creatures that live in the rock pools and on the sand.

This event is a drop in event that is FREE (although donations to the RSPB are always welcome) and is meant for all the family.

What’s On Wednesday

I spotted this event and thought that it might be an interesting one to take your little one to so that they can experience a live dance performance.

This weekend (Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd March at 12 noon and 2pm) Kelvingrove Art Gallery and  Museum will be hosting a free performance by Janis Claxton Dance.

Here is what the Tramway website says about them:

“Renowned for its imaginative use of public spaces, the award-winning company, Janis Claxton Dance, present a performance based on the study of emergent mathematical patterns. Small variants initiate changes, patterns evolve and dissolve revealing both simplicity and complexity within the piece.

Chaos and Contingency features an international cast of nine dancers from Scotland and China with music composed by Philip Pinsky. The performance offers its audience alternative modes of seeing dance and is designed to be viewed from different angles, including from above. A rare chance to experience one of Scotland’s finest choreographers working with a company of exquisite dancers in this unique art and science collaboration.”

For a taster of the show why don’t you take a look here

The performance is 50 minutes long but as it’s in the public space I am sure that you could leave if your little one has had enough and there’s plenty of other things to look at in the museum.

Have a fun and cultural weekend!
