Something for everyone: Renfrewshire Arts & Museums is delighted to announce its brand new arts programme for Spring 2013.
Spring has arrived early at Renfrewshire Arts & Museums, bringing with it a wonderful selection of dance and drama performances, museum exhibitions, music gigs and film screenings, as well as a superb range of regular activities and classes for everyone from creative kids to talented tea dancers.
Our ever popular array of regular classes kicks off proceedings and places can now be booked for Saturday Art Classes, Creative Art Classes, Fashion Design workshops and Club Animate. Run by our fantastic Outreach Team these classes offer kids the chance to make their own movie, devise a stylish outfit or create their very own masterpiece. Plus, firm family favourites Playdays! @ the museum and themed Baby Discos will be back once again.
Movie time begins in March at Paisley Arts Centre bringing you a great selection of family favourites old and new. Disney and animation fans in particular will enjoy Brave and A Cat in Paris on the silver screen.
On the music scene there will be folk performances from Karine Polwart, Heidi Talbot and the critically acclaimed Southern Tenant Folk Union, a little bit of jazz from Loretta Reid and a tribute to the magic of The Eagles courtesy of Scottish group, Hotel California.
On the stage, hit Edinburgh Fringe show The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs will test our social conscience with a hilarious and sometimes harrowing tale about our beloved iPhones. Or if it’s a laugh you seek there will be plenty to smile about at How to Make a Killing in Bollywood, I Spy Mrs Peery and new comedy show Hardeep Singh Kohli’s Indian Takeaway.
This season we will once again be embracing Refugee Week to help celebrate diversity in Scotland and raise awareness of refugee issues. A Refugee Week Film curated by the African Association of Communities in Renfrewshire will be screened at Paisley Arts Centre where you will also be able to view Spirit, an inspiring photography project launched in partnership by the Scottish Refugee Council and Streetlevel Photoworks.
Paisley Museum will also play host to a number of not to be missed exhibitions this season, beginning with a beautiful display of some of our star artworks as part of Delightful in February. Plus our Alexander Wilson exhibition promises to delve into the social and natural history behind the famous Paisley poet and highly respected ornithologist.
The Guide for Spring 2013, complete with details of our arts programme in full is now available to collect, for free, from Paisley Town Hall, Paisley Arts Centre and Paisley Museum or can be downloaded online by visiting www.renfrewshire.gov.uk.
