Maw Goose Postponed until 2022

Right at the heart of Macrobert’s annual programme is our pantomime and for many of us, it is a highlight in our year. We are sorry that Maw Goose has had to move to 2022 but keep up to date with our What’s On information for news on other family fun to come and see this Christmas.

The Macrobert Veterans Group

In 2016 Macrobert Arts Centre played host to 5 Soldiers, a dance piece by the Rosie Kay dance company which told just some of the stories of those in the British Armed Forces. As part of this many community projects were also delivered with schools, local military families and veterans. From this our current offer for Armed Forces Veterans was born. Find out more...

New guidance issued by the Scottish Government on Tue 17 Nov has placed Stirling into Tier 4, which requires our cinema to remain closed. Although disappointing, we fully support any measures needed to keep our community safe. The temporary closure will be until, initially, Fri 11 Dec. Please note that our telephone lines and Box Office will also be closed during this time. For full listings or to book tickets please check out our website,

We recognise that black voices in the arts are vital, and that many still face a struggle for their voices to be heard. Since the tragic death of George Floyd on 25 May and the outpouring of cries for change from across the world, we have been reviewing our core organisational values and how these inform the conversations and experiences we programme. It is clear there is more to do and we are committed to taking the time to listen, question and discuss what more can be done to play our part in making a global change. Our promise is to champion black artists, filmmakers and voices from all backgrounds. Only through a diversity of voices can we create an arts sector that is representative and open to all.

After careful consideration and in light of the ongoing restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 lockdown, we have decided to delay this year’s panto, Maw Goose, until 2021. Each year more than 26,000 local supporters come together for all the joy of laughing, singing and groaning at the gags together – some even get a very special ‘Hello!’ from our Dame. Although the Scottish Government is slowly releasing lockdown measures they cannot yet be sure to provide the fantastic experience audiences expect from a Macrobert Panto, whilst staying socially distant. We want to make the best decision for everyone involved.
