The Big Lunch

We’re getting involved the UK's annual neighbourhood get together and you’re invited! Since it all began back in June 2009, millions of people stop what they're doing and gather with neighbours in a nationwide act of community and friendship. There will be lots of things going on at Macrobert Arts Centre to celebrate the Big Day, including live music and creative workshops and it’s all totally free. All you need to do is bring your own picnic, and if you’re happy share with friends, old and new, then all the better!

Laurie Motherwell: Comes Around

We are delighted to be holding a rehearsed reading of a play in development by Laurie Motherwell - Comes Around: a humorous reflection on sex and the older citizen. Archie, Margaret and Fergus are well in their 70s with time on their hands. We join them on a journey to new discoveries in the third age and look for answers to questions; What's going on at the caravan park? Why is the community nurse coming to visit with 'interesting' items in her bag? Directed by Julie Ellen Performed by Michael Mackenzie, Joanna Tope, Crawford Logan & Nicola Roy
Sleepin Cutie

Panto Young Cast Auditions

We are delighted to announce that Panto Young Cast auditions for Sleepin’ Cutie will take place on Sun 13 May from 2.30pm - 4.30pm at Macrobert Arts Centre. With lots of rehearsals and performances, this is a big commitment but our young cast always tell us what a fantastic time they've had!

Celebrating Women's Right to Vote

Processions is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take part in a mass participation artwork to celebrate one hundred years of votes for women and we're delighted to be one of the 100 organisations, creating 100 banners to mark the occasion. In 1918, the Representation of the People Act gave the first British women the right to vote and stand for public office. One hundred years on, we are inviting women* and girls across the UK to come and mark this historic moment as part of a living portrait of women in the 21st century.


In response to the extreme weather conditions we had to close from Wed 28 Feb to Sun 4 Mar, leaving lots of disappointed customers. However, we are delighted that some of the cancelled events have now been rescheduled and with tickets are being honoured for the new dates we hope that you can join us!
