Children in and around Castle Douglas are in for a real treat on Monday. For Sticky Kids’ favourites Molly and Mac have organised two summer singalongs before they head off to the Olympic Games.

The new show – for children aged two to six – will, as usual, be filled with lots of laughs and participation for all young Sticky Kids, with songs from the hugely popular Sticky Kids range, including the new Go For Gold CD.

But while the show itself is bound to cause a lot of excitement, Molly and Mac have something extra special in store. For Molly (aka Anne Butler, who lives at Durisdeer, near Thornhill) has created an Olympic anthem for nursery youngsters after being asked by the Scottish Book Trust to write a song to celebrate the Olympic torch’s journey through Scotland.

Youngsters will now get the chance to learn the song at the Sticky Kids shows.

The song, The Torch Is On Its Way, is sung by Dumfries and Galloway folk singer Emily Smith. Anyone can download it for free at, and a special YouTube video with all the actions is available at

The Sticky Kids Olympic Singalong Show will be at Castle Douglas Primary School, Jenny’s Loaning, on Monday, July 2.

The two shows are at 10am and 1.30pm. Tickets are priced £5, with group discount £4 for groups of 10+ and teachers. For tickets, call the box office on 0141 416 1846 or book online at
