Perth on Canvas –  RSGS Christmas Fair

Perth on Canvas – RSGS Christmas Fair

As a small charity with limited financial resources, the Perth-based Royal Scottish Geographical Society (RSGS) relies heavily on the creativity and motivation of its staff and volunteers, and goodwill from a whole host of contributors from around the world. But, with this support, it really does achieve a lot…

One of the most impressive examples of this was a recent commission by the Society for a new painting of Perth. Delivered by local artist Rob Hain, the result is a vividly colourful and richly interesting new depiction of ‘The Fair City’, complete with humorous references to well-known people, places and events around Perth.

A brief viewing of the artwork, for instance, reveals both the exhilarating Tay Descent and the zany Kilt Run, landmarks such as the Perth Concert Hall and The Fair Maid’s House, and local characters such as the Perth Scooter Gran. For many, however, it’s the small details that have really captured the imagination, with each new viewing uncovering a new character, joke or quirk such as the frolicking giraffe featured in the bottom corner of the painting!

Since it was unveiled during the summer, over 50 prints of Rob’s painting have been sold to locals and art collectors alike… and now, only a few limited edition prints remain. Oh, in addition to the eye-catching original, which is currently available for £7,500 if your budget stretches that far…!

So, you’re probably wondering: how can I get hold of a print? And, where can I view (or purchase!) the original?

The answer is at our upcoming RSGS Christmas Fair, on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December. At this festive occasion, there will be cheer, merriment and scintillating gift ideas on offer. In addition to Rob Hain’s painting, guests will also have the chance to meet Jo Woolf, the author of our recently commissioned book, The Great Horizon, peruse some of our priceless archive pieces, support some adventurous students from Perth Academy, and indulge in some tasty yuletide treats!

What’s not to love?

The Christmas Fair is free of charge and open to all, so please come along to the Fair Maid’s House, Perth, PH1 5LU for an early dose of festive fun on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December. Open daily between 10:30 and 16:00.

Happy Mondays: Week 9 – Preparation Prevents …

‘Preparation prevents poor performance!’ – well this week I killed two birds with one stone by doing detailed preparation of a site and finding something to do for my Happy Monday Microadventure.  This winter Morrocco Media are making a back-country ski film based around Glenshee and I’ve been needing to head up to scope out some of the locations we will be filming to sort out access and filming points.

Fair Game in the Fair City

Fair Game in the Fair City

Hundreds of gamers from all over Scotland will be descending on Perth next year as it holds the first Tabletop Scotland event.

Tabletop gaming is sweeping the globe – a growing trend based on the move away from online experiences to more social face to face gaming.

Perth’s Dewars Centre will play host to Tabletop Scotland, welcoming board and tabletop game enthusiasts from across the country and promises to be one of the biggest gaming events seen in Scotland.

Tabletop Scotland’s Director, David Wright said:

Tabletop gaming has become increasingly popular in recent years and is a great way for people to socialise, make new friends and to have a great time doing so.

This event will showcase a wide array of games, from strategy board and card games to family games, role-playing games and many more.  We will have a library of games on hand for people to learn and play on-site so no prior knowledge will be required.

We created Tabletop Scotland to have a focal point for the hobby in Scotland and to bring together those already involved in the gaming community and those who may be discovering for the first time that tabletop gaming exists!

Hosting Tabletop Scotland in a central location to allow convenient travel for visitors from all over Scotland and beyond is vital, so what better place than Perth; the heart of Scotland.  We are absolutely delighted to be able to bring it to Dewars Centre in 2018.”

Stuart Kane, Director of Big Dog Books and Deputy Chair of the Perth Traders Association, added:

“Big Dog Books is fully committed to the benefits of tabletop gaming and is really excited to see the launch of Tabletop Scotland. 2018 is the Year of Young People and activities that get groups of young people working and playing together face-to-face can have important social benefits in an increasingly digital world.

“In choosing Perth, Tabletop Scotland has picked a vibrant and bustling city to host Scotland’s first major tabletop expo. The Dewars Centre is fully serviced to meet attendees needs; and with excellent transport links, accommodation, restaurants, and shopping available in the city Tabletop Scotland can be the focal point for a wonderful family weekend.”

Tabletop Scotland will come to Dewars Centre, Perth for two days on 1st and 2nd September 2018.

Perth Theatre Studio named in honour of past director

Perth Theatre Studio named in honour of past director

The new Studio in the transformed Perth Theatre has been named in honour of Joan Knight, a past artistic director of the 117-year-old venue.

Joan Knight, who was artistic director of Perth Theatre from 1968 to 1993, was renowned as a champion for young talent and new playwriting. This commitment will be reflected in the Joan Knight New Commission Fund which will be set up to invest in emerging talent with the Joan Knight Studio as its stage. Donations to the fund are being invited from members of the public.

The driving force behind the creation of the Fund and the naming of the Studio are two former close colleagues of Joan Knight.

Vanessa Rawlings-Jackson, who was the first general manager of Perth Theatre from 1976 to 1982 said:

“Joan Knight believed in nurturing new talent, and growing existing talent. She would give new and established actors opportunities to develop their skills, she commissioned and employed  new writers, designers and directors many of whom went on to run major theatre companies and direct productions across the UK and internationally. This commitment provides the foundation on which the Joan Knight New Commission Fund will be established. Its aim will be to invest in emerging talent – in the people of today who will bring new ideas and energy to the theatre with the opportunity to work with the remarkable current artistic team at Perth Theatre, headed by Lu Kemp. Yesterday and today will combine to create a bright and theatrically rich tomorrow.

Patrick Sandford who worked at Perth Theatre in the 1980s as trainee, associate director and then director said:

“Looking back it is important to acknowledge that audiences change and the theatre always needs new approaches. The past is interesting and should be honoured and examined, but the nostalgic notion of a Golden Age is misleading. The Golden Age for Perth Theatre is now. Joan would be thrilled to have a new studio space and to think that living writers were having their work done in it, by enterprising directors and actors.”

Gwilym Gibbons, CEO Horsecross Arts | Lu Kemp, Artistic Director – Perth Theatre

Lu Kemp, artistic director for Perth Theatre said:

“For the past three decades, Scotland has been a beacon for new writing – the work of Scottish playwrights is performed all over the world. I look forward to honouring Joan Knight’s legacy, and following my own personal commitment, by developing and supporting new talent at Perth Theatre. The flexibility of the new Studio is an inspiration, and will enable artists to create relevant exciting work for audiences today. I urge the people of Perth to get behind this fantastic initiative.”

Cllr Ian Campbell, Leader of Perth & Kinross Council, project partners on the Perth Theatre transformation said:

“It’s fantastic to see the Studio at Perth Theatre being named after Joan Knight. As a pivotal figure in the history of the Theatre, Joan really cemented Perth’s reputation for culture. It is entirely fitting that the Studio, which will open up theatre to whole new audience, bears her name.

 

The doors to the restored and redeveloped Perth Theatre will open on Monday 13 November when the public will be able to access Box Office and the Theatre Café and Bar. Funding for the £16.6m project has been pledged from project partners Perth & Kinross Council, Creative Scotland, The Gannochy Trust, the Heritage Lottery Fund, other trusts and foundations, individual donations and other supporters and funding bodies

The first production in the restored Edwardian auditorium is Perth Theatre’s homecoming pantomime Aladdin from Saturday 9 December until Saturday 6 January. For tickets and info about Perth Theatre’s reopening programme visit www.horsecross.co.uk call Box Office on 01738 621031.

For further information on how to donate to the Joan Knight New Commission Fund and be invited to related fundraising events, contact Horsecross Arts Development team on 01738 472731 or email development@horsecross.co.uk.

Happy Mondays: Week 8 – Getting Back to my Roots

Happy Mondays: Week 8 – Getting Back to my Roots

I started my 16-year filming career by filming downhill mountain biking, so it was a great pleasure to get back to my roots and do some mountain bike filming at the Birks of Aberfeldy on Monday.  You’ll be glad to know that I was working for Glen Lyon Coffee Roasters and filming the very talented Lewis Summers, and not filming myself (although there will be plenty of that in future weeks).  Lewis is seriously talented and a native of Aberfeldy.  In fact, he put in most of the mtb tracks around Aberfeldy.

Cake Fest Perth and Kinross– budding bakers needed for an edible adventure

Cake Fest Perth and Kinross– budding bakers needed for an edible adventure

As part of this year’s Winter Festival we are looking for bakers of all abilities from beginners to professionals to help create a giant edible map of Perth and Kinross.

Groups or individuals are being asked to pick their favourite building or place within Perth and Kinross and recreate it in cake form.  These will then feature on a giant edible map of the region which will be skillfully created by Cake Fest Head Baker Simon Preston. Baking teams will be guided by Simon every step of the way and there’s no charge to take part.

The grand unveiling of Cake Fest Perth and Kinross will take place on Sunday November 19 at Horsecross Plaza.  The fully edible landscape will be modelled under cover and bakers will arrive throughout the day to add their creation to the masterpiece.  Once the map has been completed, and people have had the chance to admire it, the cake buildings will be sliced up and shared with festival goers.

Bakers taking part can choose a landmark they love to be temporarily immortalised in cake or select from a list which includes:

McDairmid Park
Loch Leven Castle
The Scottish Crannog Centre
Huntingtower Castle
Perth City Hall
