Festive Shows at Platform

Located just minutes away from Glasgow Fort, Platform is the arts centre at the heart of The Bridge, located in Easterhouse.  This December, join Platform for one (or both!) of their festive shows… 

 

Rudolf is aimed at everyone from age 3yrs and up and is ideal for a fun festive outing for all the family.

It’s Christmas, but it’s hard to celebrate with no cards, tree, presents or food. If only Esmerelda the chicken would agree to laying an egg…but Esmerelda just won’t be persuaded, unless she hears her favourite story – Rudolf.  And so, using their imaginations, the objects in their tiny house and a strong sense of the ridiculous, our two unlikely storytellers attempt the tale of Rudolf, the reindeer that just doesn’t fit in.

Presented by Andy Manley and Platform, the show runs for 50 minutes with no interval – perfect for little ones.

Rudolf - Tue 5 - Sun 17 Dec (various times during day and evening)

Age 3yrs+

Tickets: £8.50 / £5 / £4.50 (Local Links)

 

Ricky McWhittington is a traditional Glasgow panto ideal for children (5yrs+) and adults alike!

Senga McWhittington’s Sweetie Shop in downtown Glasgow is over-run by a swarm of rats, led by the villainous verminous Queen Rat. Nothing can stop this plague until our hero Ricky McWhittington steps in to save the day, with the helping wand of Fairy Gallus Alice, and fearless feline Kitty.  Will good win out? Will Melody find her true love? Will Senga get a man? A festive show bursting with laughs, singalong favourites and family fun.

By Alan McHugh and presented by Glasgow Life.

Ricky McWhittington - Tue 19 – Sat 23 Dec (various times – see website for details)

Age 5yrs+

Tickets: £8.50 / £5 / £4.50 (Local Links)
