Stirling Kaleidoscope

Cent Scot Docu Fest: Closing Event

Following a fantastic week at the first ever Central Scotland Documentary Festival, we are rounding off the week with Stirling Kaleidoscope - a live cinema event featuring archive films of the area. Stirling’s key role in Scottish history is mirrored in the national film collections and how Scotland has projected itself on the world’s screens over the years.

Cent Scot Docu Fest: Brexitannia

With only one week left until the opening of the Central Scotland Documentary Festival, we are getting ready for the opening event - Brexitannia. The portrait of a democracy in all its impossible and ugly glory. With subtle force, yet without judgement, it presents the people of a once powerful empire as they negotiate their identities in a world that is changing faster than ever and in which power appears to lie further and further from people’s own hands.

HandMade Exhibition: Call For Artists and Makers

Our annual Christmas sale of arts and crafts is back for a third year! We host both professional and amateur exhibitions in our Gallery space, the Arthouse, all year round. Over the festive periods 2015 & 2016 we hosted a sale of affordable Artworks and Crafts throughout our busy panto season, offering our audiences opportunities to purchase original Christmas gifts.
