Highland Archaeology Festival
Lots of lovely events
Grantown Museum is jam-packed with upcoming events during the autumn.
With our own exhibition Consequences running until September 30, there is no better time to get down to Burnfield.
This weekend sees The Big Draw, a national festival of drawing. You are invited along to find inspiration in the museum’s collectio. The event runs from Friday-Sunday, 1pm-4pm.
In October, two events will be running during the Highland Archaeology Festival. The first, on October 1 at 7.30pm, is a talk on the prehistoric sites of human occupation in Strathspey. This will be delivered by Dr Steve Goodall, with a suggested donation of £5.
A few days later, the museum will recreate the popular historical tour around the policies of Castle Grant. This will start from the museum at 10am on Thursday October 13. The suggestion donation here is £10.
Andfinally local artist Chloe Kelman will be showing her Highland cow paintings during October as well as the long-awaitedTen exhibition, in which 10 people have chosen an object from the collection and written a response to it. It could be a poem, a memory of just a few lines on why they like it.
