Echoes from Inverclyde

What a privilege it was to spend time in Greenock, it really felt like coming home. Every time I visited All Saints Primary School as we prepared for the show together, I drove along the Clyde, crossing it on the Erskine Bridge and feeling its deep waters and beautiful countryside calling me home and to a wonderful opportunity to discover women in science then and now!

Echoes fae Fife

Fife turned out to be a treasure trove of women scientists past, present and future! Kirkcaldy Old Kirk hosted the performance featuring Doctor Adeline Campbell & 5 of her sisters, born to the minister there in the late C19th; Mary Somerville who grew up nearby in Burntisland and 7 incredible Astronomers and Physicists from the University of St Andrews

Echoes from Lyth Arts Centre

Lyth signalled the end of the first part of our #EchoeScot tour – the final date of 2018. We learnt a great deal on the tour which started in St Abbs in the far South East, visiting Stirling, Killin & Kenmore, Isle of Coll and Strathpeffer on our way to this Northern outpost of artistic excellence, bursting with energy and life in a most unexpected, isolated position.

A Song for Strathpeffer Saves

Strathpeffer provided a wonderful stop over and fun diversion during our Echoes – Minerva Scientifica Tour of Scotland which began in June 2018 at Eyemouth and St Abbs and finished in Perth in November 2019.. We were on our way from the Isle of Coll to Wick, so we were delighted to spend an evening in this beautiful town, and what fun we had.
