Week One - Monday 12th July and Friday 16th July
Daniel Serridge - Six silly ships sail silently to shore - An interactive story and wordplay session for all the family

Storyteller Daniel Serridge will lead a group of strangers through a succession of silly stories, signals and signs in this interactive wordplay workshop for all the family. Your mission should you choose to accept it is to try and get a message to someone, anyone, before your time runs out. Whether you move, mouth and Morse, or shout, sing, and semaphore you must connect with another ship that sails across the creaking tween deck of the Glenlee. Come join Daniel on a silly exploration of what it means to connect with world around us after we’ve spent so long in our own boats.

Week Two - Monday 19th and Friday 23rd July
Jan Bee Brown - Tall Ship Shanties & Even Taller Tales

Set sail with stories! If Jan isn’t telling tales on Tall Ships you’ll find her coastal rowing in The Firth of Forth so her willow creel is full of sea shanties, nautical tales, eco quests, monsters, stowaways, and feisty female pirates…stories of the sea, sometimes tall and often true! Jan's performances will take place on the weather deck of Glenlee and so do not require booking.

Week Three - Monday 26th July and Friday 30th July
Melanie Jordan - 'Waves of Communication' - a fun interactive physical theatre performance on board!

Melanie is an actor, director and theatre maker based in Glasgow who makes performance in theatres, on screens and on the streets which is visually driven, physically dynamic and exposes our shared humanity with curiosity and humour.

Week Four - Monday 2nd August and Friday 6th August
Stephen Halkett - Save the Planet

Glaswegian comic and science teacher Stephen Halkett is your host for a fun filled interactive show on how to save our beautiful planet. You see, the thing is, our Earth needs rescuing from this global warming ‘thingy’. We need to cut out those smelly greenhouse gases and we need your help! There will be loads of games, jokes and laughter along the way and quite possibly the odd ‘bottom burp’ sound! Oh, and there will be prizes!

Come along and together we will Save the Planet!!

Suitable for ages 5+
