Halloween festivities may be over but the Galoshans Festival has plenty more events up its sleeve.

The festival has linked in with the globally significant COP26 summit and for the next week climate will be the event's main theme.

From November 6 to 12, Willie Sutherland will present his ‘View from the Moon’ exhibition which showcases work inspired by environmental themes from George Wyllie’s ‘Christmas Day Down a Goldmine’, alongside original works by the Gourock artist.

This timely jewel of an exhibition, presented during COP26, invites people to question our treatment of the planet in this time of climate emergency.

Mr Wyllie died aged 90 in 2012 and would have turned 100 on Hogmanay this year. The show, at Greenock's historic Tobacco Warehouse, reflects Wyllie's life-long interest preoccupation with the environment and features loans of work from the Wyllie family.

‘View from the Moon’ will take place at RIG Arts within the Tobacco Warehouse at 11 Clarence Street, Greenock, between 10am and 4pm. The event is free.

On November 12, ‘Pauline and the Matches’ will showcase at the Wellpark Mid Kirk from 6.30pm. Readers can join Pauline and friends for a haunting, atmospheric performance of ghostly vocals, accompanied by giant droning bellows, to consider climate catastrophe and loss.

Bringing together vivid imagery with a lively, energetic musical performance, it will feature special guests including Jenny Moore’s Mystic Business, Belinda Gilbert Scott and Sarah Kenchington. Tickets are free, although pre-booking is required via Eventbrite.
