An Overdue Catch-Up
It’s been a while since we’ve blogged (sorry about that) but there have been so many exciting things happening at New Lanark, we’re finally taking a minute to catch our breath and give you a well-deserved update.
We had such a blast with our Christmas Experience last year and almost 6,000 of you came along for a visit. There was Santa’s grotto, the Festive Spirit of Christmas Ride, gifts, lights and tinsel galore. We already can’t wait for next Christmas! There was also our Pantomime, Beauty and the Beastie, which had everyone of all ages, dancing, signing shouting and looking behind them.
Stargazing in Scotland is always a risk, but we went ahead anyway! And what a weekend it was, there were stars, clouds, crafts and event Intergalactic ice cream sundaes. Keep yours eyes peeled for news on our next Stargazing event!
The New Lanark TH/CARS is a large scale regeneration project that began in 2015 and is due to complete in summer 2020. We are currently on Phase 3 of this project, having completed works on Double Row, Museum Stair, Mantilla Row and Church Boundary Walls. We’ll provide a full blog detailing everything we’re doing and have done soon, expect stonemasonry workshops, exhibitions, and 3D tours.
Scots have migrated all over the world and have often had a profound impact on the areas where they settled. The Scottish Diaspora Tapestry Project brings together stories from such communities, documenting their Scottish connections in 305 embroidered panels.
