Summer Fest is South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture's Summer Arts Festival especially aimed at families.
Come and join us at this year’s summer festival with a fabulous two days of fun activities, highlights will include the return of last year’s popular yarnbombing.
The yarnbombing trend isn't letting up a stitch!
Called knit graffiti in Europe, Yarnbombing has been taking place all over the world and now returns to East Kilbride as part of EKSF stitching cozies for everything from bike racks to trees.
A wonderful way of bringing the community together, yarn-bombing is done all over the world. Simply take either blankets or flowers or anything that can be knitted or crocheted and decorate the street furniture - the lamp posts and benches and everything.
Community groups, local knitting groups and individuals have been collectively knitting and crocheting bringing the traditional crafts back together. Come along and see the Arts Centre transformed!
