Saturday 19th July 2pm to 5.30pm

Join in with the Commonwealth Film & Theatre Festival. We will take you and your family on a journey through Kelvingrove Park and round up the afternoon with a film screening of Moon Man – specially selected for a young audience. Meeting at Stewart Memorial Fountain, Kelvingrove Park, followed by film screening of  Moon Man, 3.30pm at the Andrew Stewart Cinema, Gilmorehill Centre, G12 8QQ.
About our film Moon Man: “The man on the moon is bored. One day, he hitches a ride to Earth on the tails of a passing comet — an “attack from outer space” that sets alarm bells ringing in the President of Earth’s headquarters — and starts to explore the fantastical creatures and sights of a new planet. But all is not well — the Moon Man’s absence from his post means that all the world’s children are unable to sleep. Before the President can capture him, they must join forces to return him to his rightful place in the sky.”

Wild Words: Writing Walk Along The River Kelvin

Sunday 20 July 1-4pm

On its long and winding path, the River Kelvin runs through the heart of Glasgow’s West End, taking in the Botanical Gardens and Kelvingrove Park; familiar to many local residents. But how much of the little details do we really notice everyday, as we walk along the path? How much do we really see? Join poet Nalini Paul for an inspirational walk and Creative Writing workshop, which covers a small stretch of the riverside path, giving you the chance to slow down and absorb the natural atmosphere and to see nature and wildlife anew.
Meet at entrance to Kelvinbridge Subway at the bridge on Great Western Road, finishing up at Kibble Palace in Glasgow Botanics
