Friends of Lyth Arts Centre
Lyth Arts Centre has a long history of providing year-on- year high quality cultural events. It holds a vital position as the only organisation in the North of Scotland offering a breadth of performances, exhibitions and cultural engagement delivered via an inclusive cultural strategy.
We invite everyone to consider joining the scheme – you will find details below. The centre is so unique and has so many things to offer to so many people. Please help us to inspire the next generation of actors, dancers, musicians and artists while enjoying your visit to a rather special place.
About Lyth Arts Centre
Over its 40 years, the centre has gradually built up an annual programme of around 50 projects attracting attendances of over 4,000.
The programme always includes live performances with plays, experimental work, contemporary dance, traditional folk, jazz, classical and world music, workshops allowing professional and local amateur musicians to work collaboratively and exhibitions offering local residents and visitors a rich insight into many branches of visual art and craft. Options are always provided to enjoy the familiar or explore the challenge of the novel or less familiar.
Recently, the focus has been largely on extending our engagement with children’s theatre companies and their valuable schools work. Our short residencies have also expanded with more companies gaining unique inspiration while spending valuable time at Lyth developing new work.
Although the centre has been able to rely on long-standing support from Creative Scotland, this is dependent on evidence of local involvement. The Friends of Lyth replaces our former Members Scheme and is essential to create financial security.
By joining the Friends of Lyth scheme you will be able to:
- BUY TICKETS AT DISCOUNTED PRICES AT MOST EVENTS
- ATTEND AN ANNUAL FRIENDS EVENING WHICH CELEBRATES THE OPENING OF OUR SUMMER EXHIBITION
