Members of the House of Commons have praised organisers of the Southside Fringe 2016.
Stewart McDonald, MP for Glasgow South, tabled an Early Day Motion congratulating the Fringe for providing quality opportunities to actors, performers and musicians in Glasgow’s Southside, which has been supported by fellow SNP members across the House.
This year's Fringe runs between 13th-29th May and takes place with 200 events in 50 venues across Glasgow, making it the biggest community organised event in Glasgow.
Commenting, Stewart McDonald said:
“The Southside Fringe is a wonderful opportunity for local musicians, comedians and cabaret events to showcase their talents in local venues, and I am delighted that members of the House have recognised this.
“By involving as many venues and businesses as possible the profile of the Southside is raised, and draws new visitors and audiences to the wonderful facilities and diverse arts landscape the Southside has to offer.
“I commend and congratulate the many volunteers and all those involved in helping make the Southside Fringe 2016 a success.”
