The Tall Ship

We have been closely collaborating with The Tall Ship on various projects such Picnic & Play and BIG Porridge & Play Glasgow Outreach. The Tall Ship, also known as the Glenlee, is one of only five Clyde built ships still afloat in the world today. It first took to the water in 1896 and circumnavigated the globe four times! It’s a great free attraction for families and they run a regular programme of events for all ages!

Picnic & Play 2019

It was great to be back at the Tall Ship again on Sunday 20th October with families from Ibrox Storyplay and Wyndford, as well as Whiteinch and other parts of the city!

The session concluded with a swashbuckling Magic Ball adventure! We were sailing off the coast of Africa and went to find treasure with Pirate Rough, encountering a sleeping Sea Monster along the way…
