#christmas at the courtyard is still going ahead tomorrow afternoon. between 2.30pm and 4.30pm

Although it is an outdoor event, our courtyard has limited space. In view of Covid guidelines, we are suggesting that all those attending maybe do a lateral flow test earlier in the day and maybe keep their face masks on while at the concert. Groups will each be performing two times throughout the afternoon.so in between performances, visit museum, or grab a coffee. Most importantly-wrap up warm.

The first of our summer events in the courtyard was held Saturday 26th June. Local NE storyteller Pauline Cordiner entranced parents and children alike with her stories about Stonehaven Harbour and she also managed to include stories about items to be found in the museum. Later on, Pauline and our Chair, Cressida presented prizes to the winners of our Children's Art Competition. With almost 40 entries, the judges had a very hard time deciding but Erin's painting was the very worthy winner.
