From The Port To The Bridge
A retrospective exhibition of the work of Port Glasgow-born electronic music pioneers Thomas Leer and the late Robert Rental, two of Scotland’s finest, but perhaps less well-known, musicians brought to Beacon Arts Centre by Simon Dell.

Special evening of electronic music on 12th October (DJ JD Twitch, Security, hausfrau & DJ Loraine Williams.)
