Friday 27th October
RIG Arts Studio Tobacco Warehouse | 7PM
3hrs | Free but ticketed via Eventbrite
Join us at the RIG Arts Studio on Friday October 27th, from 7PM, for an evening of exciting live, local young musicians and bands performing.
RIG Arts have been funded by Creative Scotland's "Youth Music Initiative" to deliver Rock School - a weekly workshop for local young people. Our tutors have been working with the young musicians to develop new and fresh bands, who will each be performing their own sets!
Tickets are free but limited due to venue size, so get yours via Eventbrite now to avoid missing out!
Free refreshments will be provided throughout the event, with donations happily accepted.
The bands will also have their own table set up to flog their merch and music, so come prepared with a bit of cash to help support these awesome young musicians!
Free earplugs will be available at the venue.
Please email Beth on email@example.com with any access requirements or questions.
See you there!
The Rock School runs on Monday nights from 7pm-9pm at the RIG Arts Studio. For ages 25 and under. The course has been made possible thanks to funding from Creative Scotland's #youthmusicinitiative
And supportive funding by The D'Oyly Carte Charitable Trust and The Beatrice Foundation.

In 1983 filming of the Greenock based horror film Siren Song was abandoned due to an unexplained incident. In an audio installation using personal headphones, hear selections from the forgotten soundtrack. We seem to have encountered some unsettling audio anomalies in the recordings. Hopefully it will all be fine…
Local composer Connor Bristow will guide you through this soundtrack in an event presented to a small group in Cathcart Square, surrounded by the voices and the buildings of the past. Like the film, the Siren Song soundtrack was sadly never completed but was unique in its use of synthesisers and sea shanties. Discover the connection between a local myth and this doomed film production.
Thursday 26th, Friday 27th and Saturday 28th October | Custom House Quay 10am - 4pm
Free and unticketed
Travelling Gallery, a contemporary art gallery in a bus, will be parked in Greenock with its latest exhibition, Take Care, a group show exploring our relationship to the non-human things we care for in an often isolated society. Artists include Uma Breakdown, Gwenan Davies, Ellie Kyungran Heo, Laura Wilson and Joy Baek with Sculpture Placement Group.
Working across a variety of mediums the artworks in the exhibition look at everything from the intimacy of baking, our care of house plants, the ritual of the coffee break, and our relationship to our pets.
The gallery is free to visit and everyone is very welcome. Travelling Gallery’s friendly team will be at the gallery to welcome visitors and chat about the exhibition. As well as visiting Greenock Travelling Gallery will be touring to other areas of Scotland with the exhibition.
