TURNTABLE

Presented by Michael John McCarthy and Red Bridge Arts

Turntable started when MJ McCarthy and his Great Aunt Kathleen connected over a stack of vinyl. Since then the Turntable team have toured its record case around Scotland, inviting listeners to investigate its contents whilst reflecting on the importance of music in their lives.

“The show will make you smile, laugh, feel moved but most of all put a tap in your foot and a song in your heart.” ***** Edinburgh Reporter

GLASGOW INTERNATIONAL 2018

The 2018 edition will also show a ecclectic programme of work by Glasgow International exhibiting artists and include Personal Structures by Jessica Ramm, screening of Love and Lithium by Henry Coombes and a curated event by artist collective Love Unlimited.

Full line up to be announced - check website and social media for updates.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Outskirts 2018 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
