Corpies, Clippies & Light

CCL1

Follow the light on a journey of a thousand lifetimes as heritage and art mesh to create a unique experience.

Corpies, Clippies & Light, a joint production by Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust and The Glasgow School of Art, pierces the dark of winter, warping visitors into a new environment composed of classic buses, video, sound and light reflecting Scotland's transport history.

For one night only, GVVT's vast and atmospheric Bridgeton Garage becomes a living 3D theatre, and its colourful collection of vehicles the principal players.

Through video projection mapping, audio and sculpture, the students of GSA interpret the tales behind the metal. Guided by image and light, walk among buses that linked Scotland's communities, experience the days when they transported miners to the pithead, shuttled workers to the city, carried kids to school and ferried families to holiday destinations. See them, touch them, hear them.

This is a groundbreaking event, appealing equally to families, art lovers, historians and transport enthusiasts. It is open to visitors from 4pm to 8pm, and admission is by ticket only. Refreshments are available throughout from the celebrated Clippie's Cafe.

GVVT will operate a courtesy shuttle bus service linking Glasgow city centre with Bridgeton, details of which will appear here soon. There is also ample on-street parking at the Garage.

Admission by ticket only.  Tickets from https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/corpies-clippies-light-tickets

Lobey Dosser in Showdown at Bridgeton Bus Garage

 Lobey17

 

The Mighty Fine Theatre Company will be bringing Lobey Dosser and the gang (including Rank Bajin and Fairy Nuff) to life in two pantomime shows being held on 10th December in the hall of the Admin Block at the garage.  The shows will start at 2pm and 4pm respectively.  This will be a family show which will appeal to young and old and will be indispersed with the humour and observations of creator Bud Neill.  Many will remember the Lobey Dosser cartoons in the Evening Times and the Sunday Mail many years ago.  But did you know that Bud Neill was also at one time a Glasgow Corporation bus driver?  True!  Here is a quick snippet of what the show will be about:

 

The legendary cartoon characters created by Bud Neill are regenerated for a showdown at Bridgeton Bus Garage. On a bus to the east end, Sheriff Lobey Dosser questions Rank Bajin about his misdeeds in the Calton Settler wagon train mural. However, Fairy Nuff also wants a second chance at life, a fresh start, a truly fantastic Christmas present. The Ole Bud Neill gang have a right carry on on the buses, with an experiment which may or may not transform all humanity into perfect beings.
