Govanhill Swimmers Gala!
THE GOVANHILL SWIMMERS ARE BACK! SATURDAY 26th MARCH 2011 AT 12 NOON
The Govanhill Swimmers have been looking for somewhere to swim since last October! Unfortunately the only pool they could find is closed. For now they have been training outside and hold their swim meets and races on the streets of Govanhill as their search for a local pool has continued. At last they have found a pool they can get in to and even though it is empty they plan a royal dry swimming gala in order to introduce their techniques to the community. They would love it if as many of the community came down to cheer their local team as they enter the pool for the first time.
This exciting group of performers from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama have been working with our Centre for Community Practice and have spent time looking into the history of the Baths through work with the campaign to stop the closure and the future of the project to re-open the baths. The ‘Govanhill Swimmers’ is their magnificent interpretation of what they have learned and you will have seen them on the streets of Govanhill, adorned in their matching costumes, caps and goggles as they search for somewhere to swim. Most recently they came to open our new “Emporium” Charity shop
You might have seen them going through their warm up exercises, joined in with them and even honked your horns or waved from your windows and generally encouraged them in their quest!!
And now they are back performing in their own Gala in the baths. Get along for some fun! Refreshments provided.
