A place to perform, sing, dance, show, make and talk!

Initiated to generate discussion about the form of public spaces within our community, Pollokshields Playhouse is a grassroots project that seeks to connect people with under-used public space. Through the temporary animation of a redundant and derelict site the project will provide a unique opportunity for testing new possibilities for the future of Pollokshields and Port Eglington.
