Rosemary Goring: Scotland: Her Story Literary Lunch SOLD OUT @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre
Feb 16 @ 12:45 pm – 2:15 pm
Rosemary Goring: Scotland: Her Story Literary Lunch SOLD OUT @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre | Scotland | United Kingdom

Scotland’s history has been told many times, but never exclusively by its women. Rosemary takes a unique perspective on dramatic national events, as well as ordinary life, as experienced by women down the centuries. From the saintly but severe medieval Queen Margaret, via Nan Shepherd and Muriel Spark, to today’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, Rosemary encompasses women from all stations and fame and brings to life the half of history that has for too long been hidden or ignored.

Neil Oliver: The Story Of The British Isles In 100 Places @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre
Feb 16 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Neil Oliver: The Story Of The British Isles In 100 Places @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre

Archaeologist, historian, conservationist, author and broadcaster, Neil Oliver is best known as presenter of the BBC documentary series, Coast. This event is his personal account of what makes these islands so special, told through places which have borne witness to the unfolding of our history. Cradling astonishing beauty, the human story here is a million years old, but the tolerant, easy-going peace we’ve enjoyed has been hard won. We’ve made and known the best and worst of times. We have been hero and villain and all else in between.

Beginning with humankind’s earliest ancestors, he takes us via Romans and Vikings, the flowering of religion, civil war, industrial revolution and two world wars. From windswept headlands to battlefields – each is a place where the spirit of the past seems to linger. “I have chosen what I consider to be the most characteristic features of the face I have grown up to know and love… in this present climate of public fear, disagreement and uncertainty about the future, I think it is timely to look again at the past, the story of this place from its earliest times.”

7.30pm – 8.30pm | £14.50

Danny Driver & Laura Ruhí Vidal - Perth Festival Of The Arts @ Perth Theatre | Scotland | United Kingdom

The recital closes with Ravel’s piano work Le Tombeau de Couperin, an intimate yet virtuosic homage to French baroque keyboard tradition, and at the same time a memorial to friends and acquaintances killed in the Great War. 

Programme: Debussy Danseuses de Delphes (from Préludes, Book 1) Ravel Cinq mélodies populaires Grecques Debussy La Soirée dans Grénade (from Estampes) Falla Siete Canciones Populares Españolas Ravel Le Tombeau de Couperin
