Family Fun Weekend 2014
- 16 May 2014 11am-4pm
There really is something for everyone at this family fun weekend! Whether you love art, dressing up, sing-a-longs or a man in uniform, you'll find something to enjoy here. Throughout the weekend, artist Marie Hay will be giving demonstrations and promoting her forthcoming exhibition ‘Commonwealth City 2014, Views of Glasgow’. You could dress up as a real Victorian lady or gent and keep an eye out for our very own ‘Barker’ who will get you in the mood for the Victorian tea party. This afternoon treat comes complete with a lively music hall act! Or turn yourself into a piece of art with a spot of face painting from Joanna McCafferty, who will help put a smile, or a butterfly, or anything else on your face! You will find a real, live Roman Legionary on duty, ready with a cheery word on life as a Roman soldier and he might even let you hold his sword! There may even be a toga party in the offing with our Roman dress-up box!
Suggested donation of £2 for tea and cake, £2 for face painting
