The Tol­booth Is Re­born

The Scots Magazine - - Focus On… Stirling -

IN days gone by, ev­ery Scot­tish burgh had a toll­booth which pro­vided a coun­cil meet­ing cham­ber, court house and jail. A few re­main and still play a ma­jor role.

Stir­ling’s Tol­booth is now a multi-pur­pose venue for mu­sic, per­for­mance, exhibitions and art classes. The former court­room is the main au­di­to­rium, the rob­ing room has be­come a bar and the old coun­cil cham­ber is a high-qual­ity restau­rant.

“The Tol­booth has a var­ied year-round pro­gramme of­fer­ing mu­sic from around the world as well as home­grown tal­ent and emerg­ing artists,” says mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer Katie Davies. “The mix is var­ied in­clud­ing trad, in­die, mu­si­cal the­atre, jazz, blues, rock, classical and com­edy. There’s also an ex­ten­sive range of cour­ses and classes for chil­dren, adults and young peo­ple.
