From Saturday 14th-Sunday 22nd March 2020, Strathaven's FIRST EVER history and heritage week happened! 'Generation Strathaven' was a celebration of our town's past, present and future as we looked through the eyes of multiple generations within the town.
In collaboration with Strathaven CARS, Generation Strathaven was going to feature various events including an exhibition of artwork by S1 pupils from Strathaven Academy that you were able to see at our event Hub at 23 Townhead Street. However, due to the ongoing global crisis and governmental advice, we made the difficult decision to close the Hub after three days and postpone many of the events due to take place. However, some of those activities are available online so make sure you follow us on social media and have subscribed to our newsletters to be kept up to date.
We'd planned on hosting some guided local history tours on 21st and 22nd March, but these will not be going ahead until a later date. Until then, feel free to download a PDF version of the map so you can take yourself on a local history tour!
