Event description

Description

Scotland has been a source of beautiful, inspiring and internationally influential modern sculpture since the Second World War, but this work has often been under-celebrated.

These two special guided tours of Marchmont (at 10:00 and 14:00) will be lead by Marchmont's Curator and Archivist, and are part of a celebration of modern Scottish Sculpture at Marchmont following on from the all-day 'Exploring Modern Scottish Sculpture' event on Saturday 21st September (09.15-18:45 - tickets are still available.

It will shine a light on the giants Eduardo Paolozzi, William Turnbull, and Gerald Laing, and whose work features in the Marchmont collection, as well as showcasing a new generation of 'local hero' sculptors working in Scotland today, including; Keith McCarter, Frippy Jameson and Charlie Poulson, some of whom, it is hoped, will be in attendance on the day - more details will follow in due course.

The tour will last approximately 2 1/2 hours and will also take in all of Marchmont's principal rooms as you would see on our 'normal' tour, and as all our tours are sold out until December this special event represents a fantastic opportunity for those who are still waiting to see inside Marchmont - winner of last years Sotheby's/Historic Houses Restoration Award.

An additional light lunch is available at 1pm for those attending one of the tours.

Please purchase a seperate ticket in advance using this page.
