Heritage Art & Culture

Promoting and celebrating the area’s rich history and heritage was raised as being increasingly important, as the towns are growing. We want to move forward, but do not want to lose sight of our
heritage and roots.

The Auchterarder and District Heritage Association do great work in researching, interpreting and presenting this history. This will continue to be supported and linked with other themes in particular a healthy and connected community, through the development of heritage trails.

The recent acquisition, and proposed
redevelopment, of the old picture house as a community arts venue has been met with great enthusiasm and encouragement from the community. Developing new arts and cultural activities is also crucial, to provide a wider offering for entertainment and learning for all ages.
