Get into Summer

Socialise, Play, and Reconnect

This summer, our family events and activities are FREE so get involved and get into summer!

It’s been a tough year for families, with the pandemic affecting so many children and young people. We could all do with a little boost. That’s why – with the support of Get into Summer - we’re offering a summer programme of FREE events, designed to get kids, teens and parents out and about.

Please visit our Events section and follow us on social media for news of our latest events.

Craft Thursdays – Weekly From 8 July 2021

Join us for weekly craft sessions, inspired by our collection and parklands. From stained-glass windows to botanical illustration, come along and get creative! These free drop-in workshops will run every Thursday afternoon from 1 pm till 3 pm from the 8 July 2021 and will be fully facilitated by a member of our learning team. Keep an eye on our social media for all theme announcements. Suitable for all ages. No Booking Required.

Bioblitz – Friday 9 July 2021

Join The Conservation Volunteers and become a wildlife explorer for the day!

Drop in any time to visit our stall with weird and wonderful objects, crafts and to take part in our scavenger hunt.

Try out some bark rubbing, mini-beast hunting and butterfly sweeping for yourself. Suitable for all ages. The guided nature walks now fully booked.

These events have been funded by Museums Galleries Scotland as part of the Scottish Government’s Get into Summer programme, supporting opportunities for children and young people to socialise, play and reconnect this summer.


We are very grateful to our key funders the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic Environment Scotland and the Scottish Government for their support in helping us deliver the Birthplace Project.
