#EPICSTAGESTORY celebrates the lives of those who have transformed, connected with or programmed in our communities over the past 20 years and more. As part of our Anniversary year we are gathering stories from promoters, visiting performers and audience members which tell the history of live events in the Highlands and Islands – from the 1970’s right up until the present day.
Share Your Story
Do you have stories to tell of performers touring the region, or of hosting them in your communities? Did you go to a particularly special gig, theatre, comedy or dance performance in one of our remote venues across the Highlands and Islands? Are you a performer who has a story to tell of your rural touring adventure? An epic journey against the odds to get to your show? A wonderful community who were incredible hosts?
