Looking to the Past at the Southside Fringe

Things are kicking off now, and we’re just as excited as you! Remember, we’ve got the Top Secret Launch Event tonight from 8 ‘til late where we’ll be launching things off with a bang, a bar, and some music. Tickets are free but please reserve your spot via eventbrite or the Facebook event page before joining us at On The Fringe this evening. The Fiesta tomorrow looks like it’s going to be a fantastic time, and we’re just hoping that the weather will be as good as (if not better than!) the forecast says it will!

In any case, with all the great things that are coming up, it’s important to remember your roots. That’s why today’s roundup, we’ve got a nifty little selection of historical and heritage events for your planning pleasure.

This beautiful colouring book is up for grabs as the prize for the Southside Heritage Celebration treasure trail. Happy hunting!

If you want to share in your local heritage and learn about the history of the area with the whole family welcome to join you, join us at the Southside Heritage Celebration for a fun, free afternoon at Pollokshields Burgh Hall, hosted by South Glasgow Heritage and Environment Trust. Crafts, stalls, and activities at this fantastic event are just the start of what’s happening as we shape an archive of the people, places, and events that make South Glasgow. This is a great opportunity to be part of something integral to the entire community, as a family or on your own.

The Southside Heritage Celebration will take place on Sunday the 19th of May, from 1pm until 4:30 pm at Pollokshields Burgh Hall. For more information, visit the event page on Facebook HERE.

And for adults only, we’ve got Danish choreographer and dancer Mette Ingvartsen showcasing the history and nuances of pornography through artistic dance in 21 Pornographies! As part of the Take Me Somewhere festival, Ingvartsen will be exploring the operations of the pornographic through a collection of erotic and affective materials which, while not all explicitly sexual in nature, bring to light the characteristics like cruelty, laughter, violence, and thrill, that all work together to give historical power to pornography.

21 Pornographies will take place on Thursday the 16th of May from 7:30 pm until 8:45 pm at Tramway. Tickets cost £15 for adults and £10 for concessions and can be booked via the event page HERE or via the Tramway website HERE. Access: Hearing Loop / Captioned.


That’s it for today’s roundup, folks, so why not check out the full programme for a breakdown of events by day, and keep an eye out for more posts on our blog for highlights and reports on everything that’s happening? Remember, #keepitsouth!
