Fair Friday

Community Production

ARCHIVE

Written and performed by members of the Citizens Community Company. A witty and nostalgic look at the Glasgow Fair holiday. An evening of true stories, traditional songs and community spirit.

In this age of white knuckle austerity, Glaswegians have tightened their belts, held onto their purse strings, cut their cloth and looked after the pennies.

Now after a long dark winter, summer’s coming!  But due to necessary cut backs…

Magaluf’s oot!

Blackpool’s oot!

Portobello’s totally oot!

So before they shut the river we’ll be heading doon the watter one last time for a jig and a cone.

Tonight we’re gonna party like we’re licking a ‘99.

A nostaligic glance at Glasgow’s favourite holiday
