What's the Saltire Roadshow all about?

The Saltire Society has announced its first Saltire Roadshow: a series of events throughout Scotland giving a platform to Scottish creatives to share their inspiring work with the general public.

In June this year, we launched our inaugural 40 Under 40 List, celebrating the richness of Scotland’s culture and recognising outstanding creative talent under the age of 40. The list included a range of actors, writers, poets, musicians and campaigners, as well as those doing innovative work in the sciences.

Now we plans to take some of that 40 Under 40 List on tour across Scotland.

The Saltire Roadshow will visit Dundee, Falkirk and Dumfries over August and September, with a fourth in Inverness planned for late October this year. This is an exciting opportunity to showcase Scottish talent, and to celebrate Scotland’s creativity across the country.

Sarah Mason, Executive Director of The Saltire Society said:  The Saltire Roadshow is an opportunity for us to engage with the people of Scotland and celebrate some of the outstanding talent within our country. We hope this will be the start of an annual roadshow to support creatives, build networks and develop our membership.  At its heart, the Saltire Society is a membership organisation here to advocate for, support, and celebrate Scottish culture.


The Saltire Roadshow will visit a number of culturally significant sites, from Dundee Contemporary Arts, to Falkirk Trinity Church, and Ellisland Farm near Dumfries, built by Robert Burns for his family.

By demonstrating its active role in culture across the country, The Saltire Society hopes to build its network of members, allowing it to increase both its reach and support of culture.

Benefits of membership include access to local Saltire Branches, special discounts on event tickets (including for the Roadshow), plus behind-the-scenes updates on The Saltire Society’s mission to celebrate Scottish creativity.
