What's on in Lanarkshire

Charity Garden Opening - Kilsyth Gardens

8 - 21 August, 2022
Aeolia Allanfauld Road, Kilsyth G65 9DE (Mr George Murdoch): A third-of-an-acre woodland garden developed since 1960 and designed to have something in flower every month of the year. The garden contains a large variety of mature specimen trees and shrubs, maples, primulas, hardy geraniums and herbaceous plants. Spring bulbs provide early colour and lilies and dahlias provide late season interest. There are a couple of small ponds for wildlife, two greenhouses and a fruit production area. The owners are members of the Scottish Rhododendron Society and have a collection of over 100 specimens, some grown from seed. Areas of the garden are often under development to provide something new to see and provide material for the extensive plant sale, which is all home grown.  Blackmill Allanfauld Road, Kilsyth G65 9DE (Mr and Mrs A Patrick): Across the road from Aeolia is Blackmill through which the Garrel Burn flows. The garden includes the magnificent seven-metre waterfall with its ever-changing moods throughout the year. On one side of the property, on the site of an old water-powered sickle mill, is an acre of mature specimen trees, rhododendrons and shrubs with an ornamental pond and a rock pool built into the remains of the mill building. Across the burn there is a further two acres of woodland glen with paths along the waterside offering glimpses of the many cascading waterfalls. A large area of wildflowers has been newly introduced alongside the burn. A micro-hydro scheme is on view, along with many different examples of dry stone walls. Visitors remark on the sense of tranquillity and peace they experience in the garden and appreciate the works of art created from repurposed stone and salvaged material. This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.

The Polar Bears Go Go Go!

13 - 14 August, 2022
All aboard! The Polar Bears are back with another adventure and this time they are off on their holidays. What could go wrong? Join the very lovable but slightly hapless duo as they set off on their holiday adventures. Will they ever reach their destination? Or are they just going around in circles? Have your ticket ready, find your seat, fasten your seatbelt and anchors aweigh – take off and go, go, go! The Polar Bears Go, Go, Go is a very funny and beguiling show without words for children aged 2-6. With friendship at its heart, this deaf-friendly show explores the joy and confusion of navigating stations, airports, suitcases, and all the different ways to go, go, go! Combining exquisite physical humour and clowning with vivid storytelling, the bungling pair find themselves in all sorts of hilarious travel-related situations. Sometimes a holiday is all about the journey, not the destination… A Unicorns/The Polar Bears Production [Image credit: Craig Sugden]
