Arbroath Festival 2020+1

July – September 2021

Shining a beacon of light on Arbroath


Save the Dates! Arbroath2020+1 full programme of dates will be live from May. We want to make sure the projects and activity we are planning are going to be able to take place how we imagine and hope. So we are taking a cautious approach to plotting out events.

6 -10 April online programme

Special live online literary events hosted by Angus Writers Circle and Scottish PEN with readings and Q&As from two new publications inspired by the Declaration of Arbroath.

Create make and learn

Join the creative activity at home with online step-by-step inspiration and tips to get you started. Art is for everyone so join in.

Art At Home

Doors might be shut but hearts are wide open

In these times of great uncertainty we strive to imagine new ways of doing things. To value, share and inspire; galvanising a spirit of community. We strive to be brave, care and create together.

Arbroath 2020+1 Group champion provision and opportunity in arts, heritage and culture for all. This website is home to Arbroath 2020+1 and welcomes you to join in and explore Arbroath’s extraordinary history, stories and future.
