What’s On Wednesday

“For three days in December, there will be a traditional family funfair outside the Riverside Museum! Out in Event Square there will be a Steam Traction Engine, Carousel, Chair-O-Planes, as well as traditional games and food stalls. There will also be the opportunity to experience a fair from the showman’s side – try your hand at running a stall, learn how rides are packed and transported across Scotland and take a peek inside both vintage and modern wagons.”

So why don’t you roll up, roll up on Friday 6th, Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th December between 11am-5pm on Fri and Sun, 10am-5pm on Sat.

This event is free to enter and the rides are free too, with no need to book in advance.”

Apologies if you get this on Thursday rather than Wednesday…. I forgot to post this up in time…. oops! 

Head on down to The Riverside Museum on 18th and 19th May  from 10am – 4pm for some unique performance by The Flying Theatre company…. a self-contained, fully functioning theatre on a bus!

The Flying Theatre company are based in France but have toured around Europe over the years and now return to Glasgow with performances throughout the day that you can drop in and see. There will be the unique stories, “Tales of Provence” and “Colours of India”….. did I mention they’ll be on a bus?! Am a little bit excited about this event and hope to make it along myself with my little one! Hope you make it along too!

Firstly, can I apologise for the lack of “What’s On Wednesday” post last week….. I was away and didn’t have my laptop with me so couldn’t get anything uploaded in time. To make it up to you I have two suggestions of places to go for this week’s post:

On Saturday 16th February you can find out how birds and aeroplanes fly and the differences between them before making your very own set of wingsat GMRC . This workshop is suitable for under 5s and is free. It is on at 11am – 12pm and again at 2pm – 3pm. To book a place for your little one give GMRC a call on: 0141 2769300

If you’d rather get dressing up why not head down to the Riverside Museum and go back in time for a vintage photo shoot which you can download and print out at home.
