Performing Arts: Celebrating the cultural impact of pantomime in Scotland

Performing Arts: Celebrating the cultural impact of pantomime in Scotland

The popular Pantomime in Scotland exhibition ran from 2008-2010 and toured across Scotland, reaching nearly a third of all people in Scotland. It was based on a research project of the same name by two academics in the College of Arts, Adrienne Scullion and Paul Maloney. The exhibition used archive footage from the National Library of Scotland and Scottish Screen as well as including memorabilia and audio recordings of memories of particular pantomimes.

Alongside the tour was a programme of free education and outreach events including talks, round table discussions, drama and art workshops and film screenings. Visitors were also encouraged to share their memories through reminiscence events. In collaboration with Scottish Opera and Glasgow Life, and the on-going support of the National Library of Scotland and Scottish Screen, Scullion and Maloney also produced a DVD and booklet Pantomime in Scotland: a celebration of Scottish Pantomime on film.
