If you’ve been hearing some commotion recently, no it’s not all the concerts at Murrayfield Stadium… it’s THE GLASGOW FLAMES!!! 🔥🔥🔥


Put the date SATURDAY 10TH JUNE in your diaries as the flames will be performing at @cca_glasgow and would love to see you there!


Going to a flame show means not only giving support to those performing, but as with all Flame performances, the audience leaves with nostalgia, questions and hope. It really is a creative exchange!!!


In this show we have stories of dangerous sea journey 🌊, being caught in a ‘Doctor Who’ vortex 🕰 and one of the Flames giving the name to American tan tights!🧦


Have we sold you yet?! Great, we’ll see you there.
Matinee Performance: 4pm
Evening Performance: 7pm

Meet ! ⚡️

Eoin McKenzie is a part of our fire practice programme; where we train creatives the “tricky hat way” in a partnership that gives both them experience and us another valued member of the TrickyHat family! ♾


He has been working with @platformglasgow , an arts centre in Easterhouse, Glasgow. Eoin is the Thursday Night Drama leader and he directed their recent work in progress piece titled ‘People Dancing’.


This was part of Platform’s ‘Made in Easterhouse’ arts festival earlier this month and was performed to a full house!


We want to say a massive well done to Eoin and all involved! We are proud to have Eoin as part of our Fire Practice mentoring programme, funded by @creativescots 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

It’s all about collaboration! 🤝

On Thursday, we had a brilliant day sharing what it means to be an Artist in Communities and what it means to those communities. This was held at @glasgowtramway , a striking and inspiring international art space in Glasgow’s south side. ⚡️

Plans were discussed for The UCI Cycling World Championships, a never seen before scale cycling event happening during August in Glasgow! How exciting! 🚴

What’s even more exciting is… it is our turn to share next and we will be sharing plans for our next ‘Round Our Place’… an audio journey, that explores meaningful places to those who voice it. We can’t wait to share! ⭐️
