Sustaining Creativity

We have all been heartened recently with the announcement of the easing of lockdown restrictions in Scotland. This means that our Craft and Design store FOLD reopened on Thursday 29 April and that we started showing films again on 21 May. We are delighted to welcome you back in person!

The current roadmap has given us confidence to plan more activities for the summer into the autumn. We are excited about these and look forward to sharing more detail with you. Watch out for announcements through our emails and on social media.

We continue to work behind the scenes on various fascinating projects with artists, staff, volunteers and other groups. It has been great to stay connected and creative when we cannot meet face to face.

When you return to the Barn you will also see some differences in the building as we have been able to undertake some improvement works during this period of closure.

As ever the health and safety of our audiences, volunteers and staff is of the utmost importance to us and all of our plans have this consideration at the fore. Although there are still some uncertainties for us, we are cautiously optimistic.
