That’s en­ter­tain­ment for La­nark­shire in 2017

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Jonathan Ged­des

2017 might have only just ar­rived, but there is al­ready a packed pro­gramme in the di­ary for the var­i­ous venues through­out La­nark­shire.

Here’s some of the very best shows that are lined up. Lo­cal lads the Trend re­turn to East Kil­bride for the first time in a few years, af­ter re­leas­ing EP Some­thing To Shout About and play­ing shows at the likes of King Tut’s and the Bar­row­land. The East Kil­bride band should ap­peal to fans of the likes of Oa­sis and the Stone Roses.

Taggart star Alex Nor­ton has been a fa­mil­iar face on Scot­tish stage and screen for six decades. In this show he’ll re­flect on ev­ery­thing from work­ing with Billy Con­nolly, Dud­ley Moore and Clint East­wood to ap­pear­ing in Gre­gory’s Girl and, of course, his stint in Taggart.

Castlemilk ac­tress Leah brings her new show to La­nark­shire, fresh from per­form­ing it at the Ed­in­burgh Fringe last year. The River City and Gary: Tank Com­man­der star will go from some ab­so­lutely hi­lar­i­ous sto­ries to belt­ing com­edy songs and back again.

Strictly Come Danc­ing star Gio­vanni prom­ises to take fans on a “jour­ney of life, through dance” in this show, which will fea­ture two pro­fes­sional singers and four dancers. Fresh from danc­ing with Laura Whit­more in last year’s show, the Ital­ian star’s show of­fers a classy nar­ra­tive as well as some fan­tas­tic danc­ing.

Act­ing Up Alex Nor­ton will be in La­nark­shire in 2017
