Anthony McReavy from East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure said: “Eastwood Park Theatre has had one of its most successful years to date so far this year and the second half is set to raise the bar even higher with over thirty shows set for the stage and screen.
“We will welcome stars to our stage, including Scottish music legend Barbara Dickson, traditional musicians Phil and Aly, singer-songwriter Elio Pace and top Sottish female comedian Janey Godley.
“Several cracking comedy shows are lined up for this season with The Wedding Planners theatre show and the improvised, magical Spontaneous Potter.
