Kirkcudbright Galleries First Birthday Party!

June 9 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm




Sunday 9th June marks our first anniversary since opening Kirkcudbright Galleries. On this day we are celebrating with music, arts and crafts activities and birthday cake!

To celebrate the one-year anniversary of Kirkcudbright Galleries since its opening, The Galleries is holding a First Birthday Party on Sunday 9th June from 12-4pm!

This will be a day of family activities, face painting, music and storytelling! And of course, birthday cake! Come along to the Galleries on this day to join in on the fun!

Outside of the Galleries, just across the road on the Soaperie Gardens in Kirkcudbright, we will be getting creative with arts activities and having fun with painting your favourite memories of the town of Kirkcudbright and the Galleries over the past year. We will be decorating party hats and doing art hunts around the gardens!

Face painting for children will also take place outside in the marquees by a local artist, Amy, on the Soaperie Gardens.

In addition to this, there will be cupcakes and birthday cake for members of the public to enjoy on this special day.

Inside the Galleries, the beautiful music from the Clarsach Society will be echoing throughout the building. This promises to be a stunning performance by the group of harpists.

This will then be followed on by a folklore story-telling session and celebration of Kirkcudbright’s artistic and mythical history by Tony Bonning. Tony is a full-time author, poet, musician and storyteller with twenty books published and sales of over a million books. He is constantly on tour doing up to three hundred shows a year (usually two-a-day). He is founder of the annual Galloway Children’s Festival, the Young Bands Project for teenagers and the weekly Play it by Ear pre-school music group. Born on the edge of the Galloway Mountains, Tony’s inspirations are his wife Jo, the land, the people and the language of his forbears.

All birthday activities on Sunday 9th June, from 12-4pm are free for members of the public. Come along to Kirkcudbright Galleries for a fun and relaxing celebration of the Galleries on its first anniversary since opening.
