Set in Bridgeton, Glasgow in 1968. The Toffs in the Towerblock continues the story of the posh Nairn family who originally hail from the affluent West End of Glasgow. After losing all their money, they now live in a room and kitchen tenement flat in Heron St Bridgeton.
The story begins a few months before the Nairn’s move to their new high rise flat in Ruby Street. There are laughs galore as they attend their first tenement house party. Also, follow young Rupert as he takes part in a grudge game of ‘Rounders’, visits Sir William Arrol steelworks in Nuneaton St and has a hilarious visit to a Glasgow barbers shop. Meanwhile, Mr and Mrs Nairn attend a Guy Fawkes party ‘Roon ‘ra back’ and host a Hogmanay party that doesn’t quite go to plan.
The sights and sounds of life in the tenements of 1968 Glasgow are affectionately remembered as the posh Nairn’s continue the struggle to adapt to their new lives. There are laughs, tears and tantrums once again as all the regulars return in this funny and heart-warming tale of tenement life.
