HERE COMES THE SUMMER Summer follows close on the heels of Spring, the weather improves and before you know it, it’s Holiday Time. Our summer programme is here to give you lots of ways to enjoy the days and nights to come. This season our Conversation is inspired by Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Show with summer activities and workshops designed to include even the very youngest of our audience members as we think about wildlife and the environment it depends on. There are lots of ways to get involved in the Conversation whether you are a young person entering our Epic Art Challenge or coming along to the Arthouse Exhibition when the entries will be available for everyone to enjoy. We are interested to hear what you have to say. There are many reasons to tap your feet and get into the groove with a summer line up of exceptional theatre which features some of the best of Scotland’s music played live; Cora Bisset’s rise to indie rock stardom brings the band of her memories back to life on stage in What Girls Are Made Of; in The Guitar Man Jon Fosse faces one man’s question of when to play on and when to stop; and the National Theatre of Scotland will make it hard to sit in your seat as every cast member plays their heart out in the legendary epitome of ‘a good night out’, John McGrath’s The Cheviot, The Stag and the Black, Black Oil. Children are also invited to join the beat with Soundcycle as Children’s Classic Concerts continue their commitment to making music fun and to sing along with their families at Shark in the Park. In August the National Theatre of Scotland will return with a stage adaptation of Jackie Kay’s autobiographical, Red Dust Road. Jackie graduated from the University of Stirling in 1983 and was awarded an Honorary Degree from the University in 2000. Follow her journey from Nairn to Lagos in search of her birth parents and discover the roots that shaped her life. These are just a few of my highlights from our stand out season – read on to find your own ‘great night out’. There is a fantastic selection of shows to come along to and activities to do but why stop there? Our Social programme invites you to; meet visiting artists and find out more about what’s on at your local Arts Centre at the Season Spotlight; share experiences of creativity in your life with other creative people at Creative Breakfasts; and come to our neighbourhood get together The Big Lunch on Sat 1 June. Whatever takes your fancy we are looking forward to meeting you, getting to know you better and to sharing good times with you this summer here at Macrobert Arts Centre.

Tue 11 Jun, 7.15pm & Sun 16 Jun, 2pm


Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s ballet has become a modern classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.

Changes on Campus

The University of Stirling is working on an exciting re-development project to build new facilities at the heart of the campus, creating a host of new study and social spaces for students, staff and visitors to use. This will mean a few changes for us at Macrobert Arts Centre and for you our customers, but we’re working with the University to keep the associated disruption to a minimum and help make your visits to Macrobert as enjoyable and easy as they’ve always been.


Our front entrance is relocating so you’ll be coming into our building from a new double door on the loch side instead – there will be signs to point you in the right direction.


You may have already noticed that Queen's Court (the large roundabout at the front of Macrobert Arts Centre) is closed to through traffic. The Blue Badge parking spaces will also be moving, but there are plans for a few more of these and you’ll still be able to drop off near our new main doors (most easily accessed from the Hillfoots entrance to the Campus).


There is a new bus hub on Campus located up beside the Stirling Court Hotel. There are regular buses to and from Macrobert Arts Centre and a number that drop off on Hillfoots Road at the back of the University, but buses no longer drop off outside Macrobert Arts Centre. We’ll continue to keep you up to date with all the latest info on our website, social media channels and e-newsletters and look forward to seeing you soon. Page 26

A Bit More About Us...


We welcome all visitors with additional access requirements and are committed to making our work and spaces accessible to everyone. Our building is accessible to wheelchairs and we have a changing places toilet – you can find us on the CP Register. Please see P26 for details of how the University re-development is affecting access to our building and keep an eye on our website for the most up-to-date details:

Family Friendly

We welcome children and families and are fully accessible for prams and pushchairs and booster cushions are available on request for the Filmhouse. Mothers are welcome to breastfeed anywhere at Macrobert Arts Centre and we have baby changing facilities in both the men’s and women’s toilets in the main foyer and the Arthouse. There is also a changing places facility in the venue.

Familiarisation Visits

We understand that visiting a new place can be unsettling for some people. If you would like to arrange a pre-event tour, please get in touch –


Queen's Court (the large roundabout at the front of Macrobert Arts Centre) is now closed to through traffic, but vehicular access is still possible from the East Link Road (most easily accessed from the Hillfoots Road entrance to the University Campus). That means you can drop-off at our building and Blue Badge holders are able to use the disabled parking spaces.

The Green Arts Initiative

We’ve been part of this national initiative since 2014, working alongside other arts organisations in Scotland to reduce our environmental impact through a range of activities. A large print version of this brochure is available on request: or 01786 466 666 Page 27
