Scotland, a lively location promoting art, language, and song, offers numerous events to cultivate both Scottish and European culture and to continue to promote creativity among its population.
This Spring, one of the foremost events that Scotland boasts is the Glasgow Annual Film Festival. This event is held from February eighteenth to February the twenty-eight. This multi-faceted festival displays a variety of documentaries, blockbuster hits, and independent films for screening and discussion, making it the perfect event for movie critics.
For lovers of language, Scotland’s Poetry Festival mixes film, dance, and poetry in a harmonious blend. Occurring March seventeenth through March twenty-first, this activity offers the opportunity to sharpen the mind and the tongue.
For plant experts or simply lovers of beauty, the Scottish Snowdrop Festival displays Scotland’s rich and lush gardens. These gardens open for public viewing on February first, and the festival continues through March fifteenth.
Perhaps Scotland’s most celebrated event this Spring is Perth 800. Perth 800 is a year long celebration that commemorates the eight-hundredth anniversary of the Royal Burgh Charter. This important document confirmed and established land rights to Perth from King William the Lion in 1210.
Last, but not least, Scotland hosts a special international festival called New Territories. This unique festival of live arts is held during the first three weeks of March, and it includes videos, music, and art instillations. This event showcases many experimental performances by one thousand invited artists from across the globe.
Indeed, Scotland has an event for every person this Spring season.
