NEWTON HARRISON PRESTON REED ELLIE DUBOIS WESTWOOD DOCUMENTARY RAINBOW SEASON


Welcome to our Summer brochure. It’s been a whirlwind few months at the Barn, with some new major projects taking off and ambitious capital development plans being pursued by the team. In January we learned that we had been successful in achieving another three years of funding support from Creative Scotland, and whilst, like many others, we didn’t receive the full amount we asked for, it was welcome confirmation that the work we do here at the Barn is nationally recognised and valued. That sense of value and belonging to a wider creative community is something our Friends of the Barn group continue to work hard to build. If you would like to be part of our growing community of supporters, then please become a Friend of the Barn – from only £15 a year and with some brand new member benefits being introduced in 2018, it’s a great way of keeping our work alive and helping us provide creative activities for the youngest and most vulnerable in our community. www.thebarnarts.co.uk/support/become-a-friend The following pages are filled with an array of performances, screenings and activities to entertain the whole family. From the sounds of international guitar star Preston Reed and the rousing strings of the North Atlantic Fiddle Convention, to stunning aerial theatre from Ellie Dubois and bespoke tailored sessions such as our Dementia-friendly film screenings - there really is something for everyone to enjoy at the Barn. Let’s make it a Summer to remember! Lorraine Grant Director
