    Home Fires, Broken Sons: Three Wee Crows Theatre Company

    Dates:Sat 21 May - Sun 22 May Location:Pollok House

    Southside Fringe Festival at Pollok House. Working in conjunction with the Southside Fringe Fesitval, Pollok House presents 'Home Fires, Broken Sons' a play by Three Wee Crows Theatre Company.

    Details

    Home Fires, Broken Sons is an exciting new work bringing to life through theatre, music, poetry and visuals, events in the villages and towns of West Scotland during World War 1. This is an intricate tapestry of tales portraying relatively normal domestic life on the Homefront – many of them actual events drawn from newspaper articles, books and memories - interwoven with the stark contrast of life at the battle front and in the trenches.

    The Three Wee Crows Theatre Company was formed in 2008, in response to a request to help entertain international visitors to Argyll participating in the Macintyre Clan gathering. Their mission is to bring to life through live theatre and music, the rich vein of the history and legends of Argyll and the West of Scotland.

    They have performed to great acclaim throughout Scotland – historic houses, kirks, castles and heritage sites as well as theatres, village halls, and the Scottish Storytelling Centre and Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh.

    Authentic period refreshments will be available.

A grand country house set in the scenic surroundings of Pollok Country Park and in easy reach of Glasgow City Centre. 

Pollok House was home to the Maxwell family and gives a real taste of upstairs/downstairs life in the 1930s. Above stairs, the lavish family rooms are packed full of period furniture and furnishings. Below stairs the vast servants’ quarters show the realities of running a country house.

Some of the servants’ rooms are now the shop selling books, gifts and food, while the original kitchen is now home to the Edwardian Kitchen.  The below stairs area is free to visit all year round.

A visit to Pollok House can be easily combined with the nearby Burrell Collection and other sites within Pollok Country Park including the old stable courtyard, the walled garden and glasshouses, and the woodland and riverside walks.

Pollok House is currently undergoing some external maintenance which is expected to continue until August 2016.  The property will remain open throughout.

For conservation reasons, some of our paintings including works by El Greco, Goya and Blake have been removed from the house. These works can be viewed by appointment at Glasgow Museums Resource Centre for more information click here.

Pollok House is a popular wedding venue, during functions there may be restricted access to one or two rooms.  If you are concerned about this affecting your enjoyment of Pollok House please call us to check 0141 616 6410.
