THE annual Sea Change festival in Cove and Kilcreggan launches on Friday night with a screening of Final Ascent, the remarkable documentary of mountaineer, inventor and rescue team pioneer Hamish MacInnes.

Last week I accidentally gave you a bum steer suggesting that its director Robbie Fraser, also had the main hand on the tiller of the hit film Nae Pasaran.

In fact what the two films share is the same production company, Cosmic Cat, so apologies for that.

However this is Robbie’s fifth film, and his back catalogue includes Hamish – the film he made of the iconic Hamish Henderson.

Final Ascent is screened at Cove Burgh Hall tomorrow, with a cash bar, and the doors opening at 7pm. Robbie will be doing a Q&A after the screening.

Saturday morning sees the traditional parade from Kilcreggan to Cove Burgh Hall, led by the primary school’s samba band.

The marchers will be fed and watered at and the Mermaid Café in the hall, after which Daffy Dill will have a special children’s show. Ms Dill is, excuse me, a bubbleologist!

Then its off to Cove Park at 1.30pm on Sunday for live music, children’s songs and art exhibition, storytelling and a barbecue. There’s a rumour going round that the sun might even shine!
