February sees the start of Glasgow International Film Festival. As well as lots of stuff for grown ups, there are plenty of films for kids and families - as well as a few extra-special events. Like the Cat Video Film Festival! Also at Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, dance fans can enjoy some dancing and then a screening of Strictly Ballroom. What’s On For Kids went to last year’s screening of Young Frankenstein and has to admit that the sound in the main hall where the film was shown was very poor (high celings and the like). It was also pretty cold so wrap up warmly.
Aye Write and its offshoot, Wee Write! is back at the start of March. There’s a pretty good schools’ programme complemented by a family day on 7 March. It is packed with lots of fun events and activities. What’s On For Kids has listed the early years stuff, school age and teenage events separately because there’s so much!
Mid-March sees Glasgow International Comedy Festival and the return of some familiar faces including James Campbell’s Comedy 4 Kids, Professor Heisenhoff, Louis Pearl, the Amazing Bubbleman, Punch and Judy and Jango Starr. A highlight must be Funz and Gamez at the Tron. This ’anarchic cult hit’ won the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Panal Prize 2014. The Times described it as ’the anti-hero of kids’ shows’.
After that, it will be Easter and the school holidays - which might be more egg-citement than we can bear!Game Masters at the National Museum of Scotland
is still on at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. It features some Scottish games as well as hits from the past and present. It is very popular so book before you go!...
