Scotland’s historic environment makes a valuable contribution to our quality of life, cultural identity, education and economy.
|Organisation:||Historic Environment Scotland|
|Project title:||Celebrating Speyside|
Celebrating Speyside formed part of HES’s 2018 Year of Young People programme, running to June 2019. 491 5-11 year olds from 14 schools creatively engaged with the heritage they felt mattered to them. This culminated in Heritage Happening, a 2-day festival of children’s heritage in Kingussie and Newtonmore. It included a performance of ‘The Cursed Bread’, a play written and performed by Newtonmore Primary School pupils based on a local legend that latterly became a book available in local libraries.
Project partners included the Tomintoul and Glenlivet Landscape Partnership, Badenoch Heritage, the Highland Folk Museum, Grantown Museum, the Badenoch Great Place Scheme and Archaeology Scotland.
