All money raised will be used to support Groam House Museum’s appeal for £5,000 to repair and redecorate the exterior of the museum in Rosemarkie.
Groam House Museum is an outstanding centre for Pictish art, set in the beautiful village of Rosemarkie. In addition to housing an important collection of carved Pictish stones it also proudly displays the nationally recognised collection of the works of Scottish artist, George Bain – whose interest in Celtic art sprang from his early studies of the carved Pictish stones.
Sadly, the building which houses the museum is in a poor state of repair. The building, which is listed, is the property of The Highland Council, but cuts in council budgets have meant that repair work on buildings has been cut back dramatically, and it now falls to the museum itself to carry out the repairs. The organisers are delighted to have the support of the following local authors who will signing and selling their own books: Marjory Tait with her new children’s book and Alex Walters with his new detective novel. They would also like to thank the organisers of ‘Word on the Street’ for including them in the Festival.
