St Peter's event was sold out

St-Peters-SeminaryEASTER SUNDAY was the final evening of the ten day run of Hinterland at the former St Peter's Seminary above Cardross.

With a good public response and the news of £4.2 million in funding from Heritage Lottery Fund and Creative Scotland, considerable optimism emerged, the organisers say.

An NVA spokesman said: "The final evening of Hinterland served as less of a conclusion, and more of a starting point for a promising future for the building and its surrounding landscape. Now, 150 years after the original Victorian estate of Kilmahew was established, we are in a position to start afresh.

"As the official launch event of Scotland's Festival of Architecture and a key highlight in the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design, Hinterland presented the creative possibilities that the revitalisation of this site will bring. The new space will become a dramatic setting for public art and debate that speaks back to the world and finds relevance and use for bold and imaginative thinking."

Over the ten evenings from March 18-27, almost 8,000 members of the public attended the sell-out event and joined organisers on nocturnal pilgrimages through the shadowy superstructure.

Reigart will now move back into the building for the final clearance and vault restoration work which will finish at the end of May. Plans for the rest of 2016 and beyond will be announced soon.
