Toonspeak have some big news…. We will be moving premises at the end of August for the first time in over 14 years! And next week rehearsals for our summer show ‘Ma Bit’ will take place in our new home!
Barmulloch Community Development Company (BCDC), a team full of amazing, determined and hard working people from Barmulloch have been working on opening this new centre for their community over the past decade. They have worked tirelessly fundraising and making sure that it has everything people need.
When they asked asked Toonspeak if we would like to be a tenant we were overjoyed. This is a fantastic opportunity. With direct access to a bigger space we will be able to help even more young people! It has two halls as well as an office space for us upstairs, a recording studio, IT suite, a massive kitchen and more. It is for the whole community to use, but we will be there full time and look forward to getting to know everyone.
Special mention to Jim Hope and Jacky Stewart from BCDC who approached us to be their tenant, they have made this whole process possible for us.
We will be very sad to leave our home in Royston, it has led to many of our most treasured memories and relationships with young people and families in the area.
And we will still work in the same areas we do already with workshops across the North East and North West of Glasgow, never forgetting our ever special relationship with Royston where we have been since the start.
We hope that you will all come and visit us in our new space.
Here is a cheeky wee look…..
Once our summer show is wrapped we will be organising a farewell party in Royston so keep your eyes open for more details.
Feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have.
