Thursday evening saw the walls of Fortrose Cathedral light up with Celtic art by George Bain and locally-designed animations.  These were accompanied by music and dance staged by local groups.  

“Thanks to everyone who braved the cold to join us for this fantastic event” said Jill Harden of Groam House Museum. “Primary and secondary school students and local adult groups came together to celebrate the Celtic art that is at the centre of the Museum’s George Bain Collection.  It was a brilliant way to launch our new project to digitise his Celtic art work and share it across the globe.”The event was the culmination of a series of workshops organised by Groam House Museum and held across the Black Isle over the last couple of months, aided by Eden Court Theatre and others.  They are all part of the new project ‘Sharing the Creativity of George Bain’ that will continue into 2021, funded by Museums Galleries Scotland and Creative Scotland.  Anyone who would like to get involved should get in touch with Groam House for further information.
