    Water Water Everywhere is a beautiful exhibition of light, art and sound by local Govanhill primary school children that compliments the parallel running theatrical show in the learning pool of Govanhill Baths. It was lovely to see the main pool of Govanhill Baths filled with still and floating representations of swimmers & rain clouds, then the silence of the space is punctuated by the sound of an angelic choir. The old changing booths are also put to good use with stories and songs played through headphones. Very enchanting
