Located in the heart of the old town, the Tolbooth is Stirling's venue for live music and the arts. Re-opened in 2002, after a sensational restoration and redesign by award winning architect Richard Murphy, the Tolbooth has quickly established a reputation as one of the best live music venues in the country. The Tolbooth has always been a feature of Stirling's cultural life, it has been a court and jail (complete with death cells) and hosted a parliament in the reign of James VI.

The Queens Hall is an iconic and vibrant venue in Edinburgh, which hosts an all year round programme of music and comedy.

An Lanntair is a hub for creativity and the arts in the Outer Hebrides. It is a multi arts venue – at one and the same time a contemporary art gallery, a theatre, a cinema, a dance studio, a concert hall, a platform for poetry and literature, a studio – every space stretched to showcase the arts in multiple forms. The featured work stretches across a national and international platform, yet the distinctiveness lies in being ‘of the place’, rooted in who we are, and the creativity of Gaelic and the Outer Hebrides takes centre stage.
