This autumn, Perth Museum and Art Gallery will travel back through the decades, from the music halls of the early 20th century to the nightclubs of the eighties and nineties, as we explore a century of Perthshire nightlife.

Are You Going to the Dancing? A Century of Perthshire Nightlife celebrates the important role that evening socialising has played in our society; from the 1920s to the present day, going to the dancing inspired new freedoms and, for many, has resulted in weddings, families and countless memories across the decades. Through good times and bad, the exhibition explores the significance of nightlife to Perthshire’s social fabric and economy.

Underneath the spotlights and glitter balls, take part in a silent disco with curated playlists, hang out at the simulated ‘bar’, select some music at the jukebox, and even enjoy a game of pool. There will be a dress-up area and a space for visitors to contribute their own memories to the exhibition.
