Welcome to Linlithgow Arts Guild's 47th Season Bringing Excellence in Live Arts to Linlithgow since 1969
Linlithgow Arts Guild offers a series of top class concerts in the town, generally from October to April.
Welcome to our web page.
We would like to invite you to share the opportunity to hear high calibre and internationally acclaimed musicians in a friendly environment. The cost of our exciting programme of 10 concerts represents excellent value, in particular the season ticket which offers concerts at a significant discount. Enjoy a glass of wine in the interval and have some thoroughly enjoyable evenings of wonderful music.
The series opens with a family concert – an afternoon performance of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf by the Anemos Arts Ensemble, who follow this with an evening concert. The varied season of events includes a piano recital by Ashley Wass, a concert with flautist Katherine Bryan and pianist Scott Mitchell, and a fully staged performance of Tchaikovsky’s opera, Eugene Onegin.
In addition, our second Julia Wade Legacy Concert is performed by The Katona Twins with the Carducci Quartet on 18th March 2017. Julia was the founder of Linlithgow Arts Guild.
Please join us and help to support the Arts Guild by taking out a subscription for the season, which will enable you to attend all the concerts (including the Julia Wade Legacy Concert) at no additional cost.
