Drama Project Takes the Stage!


Linlithgow’s new museum turned into a stage in early May, when it hosted plays by pupils from Linlithgow Bridge and Linlithgow Primary Schools.

Both schools were taking part in a community project called ‘Curious Histories’, under the guidance of local youth arts company Firefly Arts. It saw Primary Sixes from each school write and perform their own shows, inspired by the history of Linlithgow.

The shows took their audience on a journey through time, with a different play performed in each gallery of the museum. First up was a look at the royal connection, followed by industry and farming, and then Linlithgow during the war. There was even a dramatic re-run of the Battle of Linlithgow Bridge in the new Community Space!

The young people deserve a massive ‘Well Done!’ for all their work and energy,’ said Eleanor Morrison, Associate Director of Firefly.
