Thursday 31st December, 9.30pm – 11:30pm
Our Hogmanay offering will look a little different this year, with no events taking place we have moved our entertainment programme from Stirling Castle Esplanade straight to your home via our digital concert, so that we can still build up to the bells together in Stirling.
This year will be a family friendly virtual concert showcasing a variety of musicians and styles, from a range of performers from, or with a strong connection to the Stirling area. Our celebration boasts a local flavour as well as providing a platform for up and coming artists.
We’ll have everything from pop classics that you can sing along to, to some wonderful traditional playing for your own kitchen Ceilidh!
There will some familiar faces popping up too, as we hear from members of our community who have been recognised as going above and beyond in their commitment to their community, the arts, or charity during 2020.
Watch the concert on Tolbooth or Albert Halls Facebook page or right here!
