Audience Feedback

Very proud…because I’m a Govanite.

No, I think Govan’s coming alive now.

You know, for a long time, it was very down,

but I think it’s starting to come back.

Audience Feedback

And the music, the words from the songs that the lady sang, 

are absolutely amazing.

It brings all the history back,

and it’s good to pass things like this onto the younger ones.  

So I think that it’s been brilliant, yea.

Audience Member

Love it. 

It’s why we came back, and I mean, 

at the interval of the first one, last month, 

we were just blown away.
