Announcing our participation in the Walter Scott 250th anniversary celebrations

We are delighted to announce our participation in The Walter Scott 250 Partnership celebrating the 250th anniversary of the birth of the great Scottish writer.

Walter Scott 250

Our contribution to the celebrations will be a short documentary film exploring a special, but little understood facet of Edvard Grieg’s early work. We will be launching the film on the composer’s birthday, 15 June 2021.

The Scott 250 celebratory year comprises a wide range of events aimed at changing perceptions of ‘Scotland’s greatest storyteller’, and offering new and refreshing perspectives on his legacy.
