The Bandstand is thrilled that a local early years centre will be programming activities on the bandstand stage and in the amphitheatre, from 10am to 3pm on Wednesday 20th May.

This is the first performance on the stage as part of the Open Wednesday Summer Season 2015 sessions.  The Amphitheatre is open from 10am to 4pm for public to access the venue and enjoy the entertainment on stage.  Through the summer we will be programming different performances on the stage, usually between noon and 3pm.  You are welcome to sit on the benches and enjoy activities, bring a sandwich, meet friends, soak up the atmosphere of this wonderful park-side venue.

On the stage this Wednesday, Kelvin Park children will be Performing dance routines taught and led by Hip Hop Tots from United Sports.  The Nursery Staff team will then lead groups of children in songs they have been learning throughout the year.

The Early Years Centre’s Parents and Staff will also be setting up tables offering Clay modelling, painting media, sound balloons, and face painting.  Perfect lunch break activities!

KPEYC will be asking for donations on behalf of the Nepal Earthquake Fund for the Balloons and Face Painting.

The History

This is Kelvin Park Early Years Centre’s third annual event which focuses on and celebrates all of the expressive arts.  For this middle day of the event they are delighted to be programming their activities at the Kelvingrove Bandstand and Amphitheatre.

‘We wanted something which would acknowledge the cultural diversity of our Nursery Centre and we found a way to do this through our Expressive Arts event, Tea in the Park. The event usually takes place over three days within the nursery grounds, featuring a range of activities and workshops in which the children can participate.’ Barbara Craig, head teacher.

Other events over the three days include a piano recital, African drumming, Mandolin Playing, French singing workshops (Led by the weekly French Teacher) Music and Storytelling in Italian (With one of the Italian mums) Saxophone Playing by a former parent, percussion and dance workshops with visiting music teacher Katherine.

For the first time this year one of our talented fathers is giving Art Workshops in the Garden with the children and of course we have our Eco parents making instruments with the children using recycled materials.
