THE TOLBOOTH VENUE INFO...

Located in the heart of the old town, the Tolbooth is Stirling's venue for live music and the arts.

Re-opened in 2002, after a sensational restoration and redesign by award winning architect Richard Murphy, the Tolbooth has quickly established a reputation as one of the best live music venues in the country.

The Tolbooth has always been a feature of Stirling's cultural life, it has been a court and jail (complete with death cells) and hosted a parliament in the reign of James VI.

Nowadays the Tolbooth is the base for Stirling Council's Arts and Event Team and the home to some of the best musicians and performers working in Scotland.

The Tolbooth organise a year round performance programme, courses and classes, an arts development programme across the whole area and The Blend: Stirling's annual roots music festival and Le Weekend: the longest running experimental music festival in Scotland.
