Kings of the castle on a mission to motivate | Herald Scotland

Stirling has witnessed a series of curious cult pop happenings of late.

 

It has seen carnal-folk reprobates John Knox Sex Club ripping it up in a church on Good Friday; alt-rock necromancers Louise McVey & Cracks In The Concrete thrilling a bohemian town-centre basement; and an art exhibition bedecking a 19th-century arcade. These pop-up events have come courtesy of Joe Hall and her Creative Stirling CIC team: a talent collective seeking to inspire and enliven Stirling's arts community, and to establish a cultural and creative hub in the heart of Stirling's historic old quarter. As of next month, Hall and co will be based in Stirling's Old Town Jail.
