Laid back and scaled down, but forward looking and dreaming big, Wee Solas is an all-age event taking place on the 21st and 22nd August in the extensive green grounds of Scone Palace. Wee Solas is a festival where audience and artists will have space to feel safe and comfortable, whilst stretching themselves and expanding creatively.|
We will showcase the same ambition in programming that Solas Festival is known for, with a carefully curated selection of music, performances and workshops across all art-forms as well as talks and discussions. We will create a temporary community, where the programme will celebrate the huge diversity of creative Scots, as well as making space for audiences to join the creative conversation. The venue in the grounds of Scone will be the perfect backdrop to this, with expansive green meadows to allow for physical distancing, and mature trees under which to reflect and connect.
NB - PLEASE READ TICKET DESCRIPTIONS CAREFULLY.
Solas Festival is a non profit organisation and we are very lucky to have a number of wonderful supporters. In addition to concession tickets for disabled adults, students and unwaged people, we have created a number of ticket price options to make this event affordable to as many people as possible. Please choose the price which best suits your financial situation - the event relies on your support. Free personal assistant tickets are also available for those who need assistance to attend the festival. If this applies please contact email@example.com for instructions on how to book.
