What’s in store as we head towards summer in May and June in East Renfrewshire? Our friends at What’s on East Renfrewshire have it covered! Plenty of chances to (hopefully) enjoy more sunshine at farmer’s markets, charity car boot sales and rainbow fun runs – plus a few indoor events just in case the weather doesn’t behave! Have fun.
The classic Cole Porter musical comes to Eastwood Park Theatre this May. Full of comedy moments, tap dancing and singalong songs, it’s a Sailor’s love story aboard the S.S American. Two unlikely pairs head out to sea to find their destiny, with a bit of help from the all dancing and singing crew on board and some good old fashioned blackmail! Performed by EROS Musical Society, Clarkston’s own amateur dramatics society, who have specialised in musical theatre for over 50 years. It’s sure to be a show for musical lovers not to miss!
When: 16 – 20 May 2017, 7:30pm and 2:30pm Saturday matinee

There will also be a warm up stage, market stalls, entertainment and fun fair rides on the day. Multiple start times available, just chose a time that best suits you for the rainbow run fun to begin. Price includes a t-shirt and packet of colour paint for you to use on friends throughout the course!
