The Old Firm fans Billy and Tim are back with the hilarious new sequel, Singin’ I’m No a Billy He’s a Tim 2, written by the award winning Des Dillon.

The show is coming to Johnstone Town Hall on Friday 27 September at 7.30pm. Log on to www.renfrewshireboxoffice.ticketsolve.com to buy tickets.

Scotland’s most lovable rival football fans make a bet that backfires in spectacular fashion during the Scottish Cup Final at Hampden Park. Throw in a wee Gallus ghost on a mission from God and Polish nurse with a short fuse and watch the comedy unfold.

This will be the first ever national tour for the production, having only ever been shown once previously at the Pavilion Theatre in Glasgow. The tour is not only being produced and directed by Chris Taylor but he will also be taking on the role of Tim once again.

Chris says “It’s been a pretty manic few months but I’m loving every minute of it. I’ve got so much faith in Des’s script it helps ease a lot of the pressure. Also, we have a really strong cast with Gary Morrison as Billy, Neil Bratchpiece (The Bam Whisperer/Scot Squad) as the ghost, and the fantastic Zofia Sokolowicz as the nurse. In fact, Zofia is flying all the way from Poland just to play the role.

“I’m really looking forward working with them all and getting this great show out to the masses across the country.  It’s selling really well already and we have been constantly adding more shows, so it’s great to see the love for Billy and Tim is still there.

“And I can say with confidence that if you liked the original then you will be in bits at this one. It’s one of the funniest shows I’ve ever been involved in”.

Chris and the team will be performing at 16 venues across the country during September.

SCOTLAND’S first café inside a Primark store has opened at intu Braehead shopping centre.

Shoppers can now buy a cappuccino along with their chinos, a latte with their T-shirt or a bite of pitta pizza with their newly-purchased polo shirt.

The Primarket Café is serving all kinds of coffee and cold drinks along with toasties, paninis, pitta pizzas, waffles, cakes and other sweet treats to sit in the café’s comfortable surroundings or to take away.

Primark is also making sure their café is environmentally friendly by using takeaway cups that are 100 per cent compostable and if customers bring their own takeaway cup, they’ll get ten pence off the cost of the drink.

The coffee is sourced directly from smaller coffee bean farmers around the world paying a fair price to cover all production costs and making sure the quality of the coffee is high.

And in a bid to cut back on the amount of plastics being discarded, the Primarket Café allows customers to refill their water bottles for free.

Marketing manager for intu Braehead, David Lyon said: “The new Primarket Café within the Primark store at intu Braehead is the first of its kind in Scotland.

“It’s a great idea to give shoppers a place to have a coffee and a chat with friends inside one of our most popular stores.

“You can’t beat a refreshing cup of tea or coffee after a shopping session!”

MORE than a thousand youngsters turned up at the intu Braehead shopping centre yesterday (Saturday) to meet their TV cartoon heroes.

All 600 tickets that each admitted two children and an adult to the meet and greet event with Paw Patrol’s Chase and Marshall were snapped up in just three hours.

And the lucky youngsters with tickets were shown how to move like their favourite characters by taking part in Pup-Pup Boogie dance masterclasses.

The fun PAW Patrol experience is visiting the shopping centre as part of a tour of intu destinations across the UK.

Marketing manager at intu Braehead, David Lyon said: “You could see how excited the kids were to meet the Chase and Marshall cartoon characters.

“We had an incredible response when we announced the event was taking place.

“The characters were at intu Braehead throughout the day and although we had 600 tickets snapped up very quickly, many other familiies came along so their children could catch a glimpse of the Paw Patrol heroes.”

Iconic Fitness

The benefits of exercise are well documented, mental and physical health, stress relief, weight loss, toning and strengthening the body to recover from injury and prevent escalation of existing conditions, all of these are great reasons to exercise and to get, and stay, fit.

Iconic Fitness

Of course you can do all of these without joining a gym, you tube now has millions of video tutorials that’ll lead you through countless exercise routines and Amazon will deliver everything you need to turn your lonely bedsit into a fully equipped workout zone.

 

Apparently there are even yoga classes online, some of them are even interactive where the teacher can see your down dog and offer suggestions on your padangusthasana that you can ignore in the privacy of your own bedroom.

 

So why even leave your house, journey to a gym, expose that feeble unexercised body to the silent critique of everyone else in the room, why put yourself through that?

 

Simply, because it works.

 

The support network in a gym is fantastic, the shared knowledge you receive from fellow members and staff is amazing, and mostly free.

 

At Iconic we have a wide range of equipment that allows you to tone and strengthen every part of the body, the fully adjustable kit can take you from feeble noodle wristed beginner to vest ripping strongman in no time, whether you prefer resistance machines or heavier plated rigs the choice is yours.

 

And as for company, the theraputic benefits of exercise within a class session are well documented, the support you receive from fellow class members to spur you on to achieve you best results is worth the entry fee alone, combine this with the training being offered from experienced, trained instructors and it’s a no brainer, the wide variety of classes on offer at Iconic ensures you’re never going to run out of inspiration to push yourself to your limits, and maybe push those limits too.

 

And video yoga?

 

It’s ok, not as good as the real thing though.

 

Full details of memberships, class times and prices are available on our website:

Hope to see you all soon.

Doors Open Days 2019

From medieval underground structures and buildings steeped in history, to allotments, fire stations and music schools, there will be plenty to celebrate about Renfrewshire at Doors Open Days (link is to 2012 photos enjoy) 2019.

Doors Open Days 2019

On Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 September, venues all over Renfrewshire – many of which do not normally allow access to what’s going on behind the scenes – will throw open their doors and invite people to delve deeper into their history.

Doors Open Days is Scotland’s largest free festival that celebrates heritage and the built environment, old and new. This year marks the 30th anniversary of Doors Open Day nationally, with more than 1000 buildings set to open across the country.

This year in Renfrewshire, more than 50 venues will welcome people of all ages across the weekend.

Many of the old Doors Open Days favourites – including Sma’ Shot Cottages and Paisley Abbey – are getting involved again this year, and a few new venues have stepped up to share their stories.

There will also be the opportunity to see inside Paisley’s medieval Abbey Drain. Look out for more detail on that in the coming weeks.

Renfrewshire Provost Lorraine Cameron is encouraging people of all ages to get involved across the weekend.

Doors Open Days Lamont Farm

Provost Cameron said: “We’re so lucky here in Renfrewshire to have such a fantastic array of beautiful, historic buildings, but we don’t often get the chance to see what goes on behind the scenes.

“Doors Open Days is a great opportunity for people of all ages to find out more about these buildings and to hear stories about our culture and heritage which will help inform our future.

“Venues have organised a brilliant range of activities across the weekend and learning will definitely be fun.

“Major events like this are great for the local economy as they get people out and about and spending money with local traders.

“We should be very proud of our history and heritage here in Renfrewshire and I hope that people of all ages take time out to get involved.”

Activities will be taking place in Paisley, Renfrew, Linwood, Johnstone, Lochwinnoch, Kilbarchan, Bridge of Weir, Houston, Erskine and Inchinnan.

Doors Open Days is coordinated nationally by the Scottish Civic Trust and is part of European Heritage Days supported by Historic Environment Scotland.

A full list of venues can be viewed online at www.paisley.is
