Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson 27/28/29 July 7.30pm

Govanhill Theatre and Radio Theatre Group join forces once again to present the classic pirate adventure. In the 1700’s a treasure map falls into the hands of young Jim Hawkins. With the help of his friend Dr. Livesey & Squire Trelawney, the trio set sail from England with Capt. Smollett and the crew of the Hispaniola to a deserted island in search of buried treasure. But they are not the only ones interested in the map, and the ship’s cook, Long John Silver & his compatriots are not what they seem to be.

This “radio play” performed as a live radio recording, is a great family adventure.

The first Govanhill International Carnival takes place on Saturday 26 August 2017.  Over the summer, community groups, faith groups and local schools are working hard to create banners, costumes and masks for the parade that will be the focus of the Carnival.  The parade will terminate at The Queens Park Arena for a family-friendly afternoon of music, food and activities for children.

First Minister of Scotland and local MSP Nicola Sturgeon will open the Carnival:

“I am delighted to be invited to launch the first ever Govanhill International Carnival. Govanhill is such a uniquely diverse part of Glasgow and the carnival will be a great opportunity to celebrate this diversity. I have no doubt that the hard work put in by local groups will make the event a success and I look forward to the Carnival becoming an annual fixture in the Govanhill calendar.”

Fatima Uygun, General Manager of Govanhill Baths Community Trust, who are organising the event said:

“We want the carnival to be a celebration of Govanhill’s unique community.  A colourful parade and family event in the park brings people from the many diverse communities of Govanhill together.  We want to make this a special annual event – like a Scottish Nottinghill.  It is apt that the First Minister will be joining us on the day.  Nicola Sturgeon has always been a big supporter of the work we do here at the Baths and integration work across the Southside.”

The Carnival takes place over the same weekend as The Unity Festival organised by Inhouse and Queens Park Arena and will be augmented by a music festival celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Rock Against Racism movement, featuring Black Grape, Aswad and others.
