Some Distant Day

About Some Distant Day

We’re cordially inviting you to an evening of birlin gallus watergaws and hope you’ll join us in causing a stromash.

‘Come and sing a different song, The kettle’s on so don’t be long, Mon Cher.’ We’re presenting a rare public screening of Jim Ferguson and Vincent Hunter’s short film-essay on Scottish culture and history. ‘Some Distant Day,’ first broadcast on STV in 2004, is a poetic film essay: an exploration of Scottish history and identity, ranging from The Reformation, through to the Industrial Revolution, and on to the re-establishment of the Scottish Parliament. A visual treat, we’re taking you on a dream-like journey through Central Scotland. All you need is your imagination. We’ll make your spirits climb! Let us entertain you, you’ll have a real good time. We’ll transport you to the far-flung places in the recesses of your mind. We’ll be turning pages and reading new work from writers, Jim Ferguson, and Ruby McCann, with original music from Glasgow Literary Lounge, Musicians-in-Residence, Brian McFall & Jamie Wilson, and a presentation on multi-media practice with artist, Louise Malone.

Cheeky Besom Productions: ‘Artists with Attitude’: (poet, writer, and critic, Jim Ferguson, artist, Louise Malone, writer, Ruby McCann, musician, Brian McFall) A Glasgow based artist collective. We devise concepts, split all running costs, and collaborate to create: sharing knowledge, making and creating, for the love of literature, art, and music. We champion artistic and cultural experiences that enrich people’s lives.

This is a FREE Event for All

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Some Distant Day are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
