This month, we catch up with Christine Bovill whose show ‘Christine Bovill’s Piaf’ garnered a swathe of five star reviews. In 2017 she picked up ‘The Spirit of the Fringe Award’ for her next show, ‘Christine Bovill’s Paris’ and it is this one that she will bring to the Lochwinnoch Arts Festival this March.
The Lochwinnoch Festival is in its 19th year. The brainchild of Lochwinnoch residents, Morag Thow and Rowena Murray, it has grown from being an afternoon book festival involving a few local authors to a three-week, multi-art event that is well-known throughout Renfrewshire. We chat about how it all began with Morag.
“OK Fest”, Kilmacolm’s 4th Annual Festival of Sound, takes place from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th March, in the Kidston Hall and Old Kirk, Kilmacolm. Events throughout the weekend. There’s also an additional event on Saturday 28th March with the Riverside Youth Band. Full details on page 46.
We’re getting ready for Lilias Day with information on page 44. If you would like to get involved, please contact email@example.com or find out more at www.liliasday.co.uk
Don’t forget the clocks change at the end of March. If you struggle to remember which direction time travels, there is an old saying, “Spring forward, Fall back” to help you.
