Windswept & Interesting: Billy Connolly
With a career that’s spanned some fifty plus years, Glasgow’s own Billy Connolly – The Big Yin – made a household name for himself with an idiosyncratic style, outspoken nature, spun-stories and fearless sharpness, while chronicling his life and the world around it via his material. Having composed plays, completed countless stand-up tours, recorded albums, and appeared in award-winning Hollywood films, it’s no wonder he has a BAFTA Lifetime Achievement Award to his name.
Navigating difficult health diagnoses hasn’t stopped Billy’s spirit, so follows the release of his autobiography – Windswept & Interesting. We worked with John Murray Press to bring Billy’s tales to Edinburgh and Glasgow, borrowing the vibrant pink from the book’s cover artwork to guarantee turning heads. With a creative billboard at our iconic Barrowlands site, a takeover at Edinburgh’s North Bridge, and sample hand-out events to tease the book’s content, it brought Billy’s story onto the streets in spectacular style.
