Govanhill Baths Arts Events in February

February is another busy month at The Baths, and also sees the launch of a Community Interest Company that has emerged out of last year’s Govanhill International Carnival.

Our latest art exhibition in the foyer launches today (February 06).  TAKING A LINE FOR A SWIM is a show of work by the participants from our evening drawing class.  Its free and will be available to view during opening hours until Friday March 02.

Govanhill Theatre presents a “Radio” version of Compton McKenzie’s “Whisky Galore” in the studio Friday 23, Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 February at 7.30pm.  Tickets are available at www.brownpapertickets.com

ROOTS ROCK REGGAE AGAINST RACISM (RRRAR) is a new CIC launched in the wake of last year’s Govanhill International Carnival.  During the Carnival we celebrated the 40th anniversary of the historic Rock Against Racism movement with a concert in Queens Park featuring reggae legends Aswad, Misty in Roots and Black Roots, launched by Jeremy Corbyn.  RRRAR is the brainchild of one of the organisers of that event, Jah Live!  Their launch takes place at The Rum Shack on Friday 23 February, we hope you can join us at the first of many regular events.
