Our new season What's On Guide is out now and is packed full of theatre, music and visual art. Our Pay-What-You-Like Taking Part programme returns with art, performance, music groups and classes running for all ages.
We're pleased to introduce our new Full House offering. If you see the Full House symbol on an event in the What's On Guide or in the event listing on the website it is a Full House day where there are at least two activities taking place on the same day - great value!
We open our performance season in January with Bus Regulation: The Musical - a Starlight Express inspired performance on roller skates re-enacting the history of public transport provision in the Strathclyde region over the years.
Farah Saleh and Oğuz Kaplangi, in collaboration with the performers, brings us A Wee Journey in March and Solar Bear present The Third Sister - the story of three teenage sisters and a past that refuses to die (BSL Interpreted).
We host Life and Lyrics of Denny Oliver, along with Easterhouse Thriving Places and friends of family of Denny Oliver, and will be getting those toes tapping at the big band Platform Tea Dance with Jon Ritchie and That Swing Sensation.
April sees the very welcome return of multi artform festival day Made in Easterhouse - a curated day of live music, visual art and performance, as well as Dancer and Non Optium: When It's Safe To Do So from 21Common.
Phil Differ brings Billy Bremner and Me to Platform in May - an autobiographical one man show about his dream to become a professional footballer. For children and families we are excited to host Happiness Collectors from The Audio Story Company - pop your headphones on and learn the best way to collect happiness and pass it on!
We welcome back Barrowland Ballet with Too Close to The Sun, exploring the story of a girl weighed down with the environmental crisis - and from surrogate, Who Killed My Father, an intimate declaration of love from son to father and a defiant call for social justice.
Our theatre season closes for spring with Katie Armstrong's Sketches - a new production inspired by Bach's Violin Concerto in A Minor, incorporating a group of dancers, a string quintet and an onstage DJ.
We have some fantastic art exhibitions and events with Mining Seams and Drawing Wells: A Living Archive for Easterhouse drawing to a close at the end of January with Tenement Kitchen, hosted by Joey Simons and Keira McLean. Graphic Impact: Our Lives In Print is inspired by the Glasgow Print Studio Archive, featuring new artwork from Platform art groups, Galgael and Glasgow Print Studio members.
April sees the opening of East End Portraits by artists Saskia Coulson and Colin Tennant - a series of photographs capturing the resilience and stories of community spirit.
