We're all going on a shark hunt!

Our Bearsden Festival 2022 is inspired by the discovery of the Bearsden Shark in the Manse Burn exactly 40 years ago in 1982.  We have already toured to all nine local primary schools as well as some care homes and sheltered housing, using drama, music and poetry to tell the story of this world-famous 330-million-year-old fossil.

Over two weeks in June we gave 15 performances in 12 venues and played to over 1,350 people. Phew!


Thank you to the amazingly talented performers – actor and storyteller Raymond Wilson, cellist and actor Simone Seales – as well as to theatre-maker Hannah Justad for devising the show.
