In the centre of Stirling, the Made in Stirling Store. has opened a new Pop-Up Summer Market (6th June – 4th September, open 10am – 5pm daily) featuring the work of more than twenty new artists. The Store has opened a new gallery, and is offering a full programme of workshops, courses and ‘summer camps’ in all manner of creative pursuits – including, unusually, cyanotype.
Additionally, in a collaboration with Stirling’s renowned record store Europa Music, Creative Stirling is presenting a unique exhibition, Superfan, featuring a collection of Beatles and other ‘sixties music print ephemera, collected over many years and curated by local Beatles ‘superfan’ Douglas Montgomery. The exhibition (which has been made possible by Scotland’s Year of Storytelling 2022 and Museums and Galleries Scotland and Event Scotland) includes a performance of Imagine on 13th August at 1pm and 7pm, written and directed by Kate Donne, in which a mum describes to her children the excitement of seeing the band when they toured Scotland in the early 1960s. Combining researched, historical facts about the concerts and snippets from the local people who were there, it’s a lively, entertaining and accurate story of a unique time in history.
