The George Michael Tribute Concert
A celebration of 30 years of Faith - the landmark album - plus all the hits, including Wham!
George Michael is portrayed by twice 'National Tribute Award Winner' and runner up 'Best British Male', Paul Grant-Reason. With respect and dedication to honour the musical legend, Paul, supported by his incredible live band and singers, captures the sound and look of George superbly.
A true legend, an icon of pop and quite possibly the finest solo star Britain has ever produced, join us to celebrate the life of incredible musical genius in a spell binding spectacle of his songs. From his early days with Wham, through his globe conquering album ‘FAITH’, his mega hits of the 90s and beyond, George’s record sales reached over 200 million!
Stunned, shocked and deeply saddened by his early passing, we have lovingly crafted a show to take you on a journey through George's solo and Wham career. We bring to the stage a spell binding spectacle of pure joy in the songs we all know and love, 30 years after the release of Faith - the album that catapulted George from teen heartthrob to Grammy Award winning superstar!

Horizontal Collaboration 27 October 2017 8:00pm £10.00 / £8.00 East Kilbride Arts Centre
Fire Exit Presents Horizontal Collaboration
By David Leddy
One act 60 minutes. Supported by Creative Scotland
Horizontal Collaboration is a courtroom drama with a dark twist where sex, power and politics collide with emotion, seduction and destruction. Four steely U.N. lawyers read out startling interview transcripts from their laptops in an explosive tribunal concerning ‘horizontal collaboration’ - the name given to the supposed wartime crime of having sex with an enemy soldier. The intense stillness of the courtroom contrasts with the volatile narrative that unfolds around Judith K, an African warlord’s wife. After her husband’s assassination, Judith becomes leader and takes her people on a treacherous path towards peace… or does she? And can women ever be given the freedom to lead in a different way from men?
Written and directed by David Leddy, who is described as a 'leading theatrical innovator' (The Times), an ‘institution’ (Independent), a ‘maverick’ and a ‘genius’ (Scotsman).
Shortlisted for Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award.
Suitable for age 16+, contains disturbing descriptions of sex and violence

Read The Past Imagine the Future 24 April - 3 December 2017
Read The Past Imagine the Future is something new at your local library.
In this Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture libraries are launching a new campaign to encourage more people to get reading.
The Read The Past Imagine the Future campaign supported by the Scottish Library and Information Council*, will be live in libraries in South Lanarkshire from 24 April to 3 December 2017.
Read the Past Imagine the Future aims to raise awareness among people of all ages to discover what their local library offers, including book lending, computers and IT facilities, e-books, newspapers and magazines, author events, children’s activities, reading groups, local and family history resources and employment support. It also aims to encourage reading throughout communities across Scotland and to widen knowledge of local and national history.
The seven month Scottish national reading promotion will include fiction, non-fiction and will celebrate Scotland’s rich heritage, history and culture of writing and reading. Stock will include local and national history and local authors as well as stock that focuses on our heritage and depicts images and ideas of the future.
Gerry Campbell, General Manager of South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture said:
“With this campaign, we want to inspire people to visit their local library and pick up a new book and enjoy reading for the pleasure it brings. It’s amazing how much books and reading can teach you and open up your imagination.
“Modern libraries offer something for people of all ages. We want to connect people to the possibilities and opportunities at their local library, through our books, our people and our technology. Your local library will be running a competition from the 24 April to 12 November 2017 with winners of the Book Tokens announced during Book Week Scotland."
The competition to win a £50.00 book token runs in libraries across Scotland. To enter - submit a book review at a local library or tweet using #ReadThePast17 and include @southlanarkshirelibraries in the tweet. A copy of the terms and conditions are available at your local library.
