New Lanark sets shining example with sound and light show
October 23 2017
Shining Lives saw gables and grounds brought to life as the backdrop for the display of historic images and video footage together with a custom soundtrack to showcase the life of the mills to a modern audience.
The narrative-driven spectacle charts the lives of mill workers and their families to paint a wider social and industrial history of the Clyde and Avon Valley.
Annique Armstrong, Visit Scotland regional director said: “The historic environment forges connections between people and places, so it’s fitting that during Scotland’s current celebratory themed year, we shone a spotlight on New Lanark’s outstanding universal value. The activity brought the region’s historic past to life in the context of a modern, collaborative and innovative Scotland for both visitors and locals who got the chance to experience this memorable event.”
The display served as a denouement to Scotland’s 2017 Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology.
