A SISTER double act are bringing plenty of drama to the Beacon as the 'Summer of Fun' comes alive.

Little stars Mirren McShane, aged 10, and her little sister Emily, aged 8, are loving life as they join the Stage A Play in Two Days workshop.

It is just one of the many activities they are signed up to with rugby, ballet and much, much more.

But first they were taking centre stage with youth theatre director and actress Saffron Gillies as Inverclyde leads the way in holiday entertainment.

Lady Alice Primary pupil Mirren, who lives in Pennyfern, said: "It is great this year because there is loads to do, last year we had nothing. But I love rugby, our mum has signed us up for lots."

She had flair in abundance as she made her moves around the floor with the rest of the class, led by Saffron.

Younger sister Emily is also excited about ballet and is keep to learn more about the performing arts.

She said: "It is brilliant and there is lots to do. We are here all day and we love it."

Super talented Saffron is brining the theatre to life for the youngsters in her workshop as they moved around the floor.

Thanks to a £200,000 Scottish Government grant there is something for everyone all over Inverclyde.

From the Beacon to the Battery Park, down to Inverkip and back again, there is an activity for all ages.

The Summer of Fun 21 is in addition to the summer holiday hubs being offered at Clydeview Academy and Port Glasgow Community Campus.

The packed programme also includes ‘Sport 4 All’ camps at Clydeview Academy and Notre Dame High schools and ‘Come and Play’ sessions at Port Glasgow Community Campus.
