Culture Perth & Kinross -

Culture Perth and Kinross are creating a brand-new exhibition at Perth Museum & Art Gallery this autumn, celebrating 100 years of local nightlife. From nightclubs to music halls, pubs to house parties and from ballroom dancing to acid house raves, our team are looking for your memorable photos, objects, and stories of nights out across Perth and Kinross throughout the years.

The charitable trust would like to hear from people who want to share their memories of nights out, particularly photographs (digital or print), videos, posters, memorabilia, clothing or anything else that reminds you of a night out on the town. We want to hear from you whether it was last week or last century!

Staff will select submissions to be incorporated into the exhibition alongside intriguing photographs, objects and documents from the collections held at Perth Museum & Art Gallery and the Perth and Kinross Archive. The exhibition opens in October.

You can get in touch with Perth Museum & Art Gallery by emailing [email protected] or by completing a short online form here:

Submissions must be received by Monday 4 August to be considered for inclusion in the exhibition.
