Glenrothes is preparing to take a step back through its rich history and art heritage with a visual spectacle to celebrate the town’s 70th anniversary.

‘Project 70’, a free one-night only art event, is set to light up one of the town’s most prominent buildings, Kingdom House, next month.

Its creator Aaron Andrews describes it as: “Photography brought to life in a contemporary style along with a spontaneous, upbeat and funky show for all age groups and walks of life to enjoy.”

“The aim was to create something that had not been done in Glenrothes before and seeing as it was not only the town’s 70th birthday, but also the 50th anniversary of David Harding becoming our, and the country’s, first town artist, this provided the perfect reasons to celebrate,” explained Aaron , whose Arro Lighting company will carry out the projection on the evening.

“We want to give people a visual and musical event like no other so we’ll be projecting the show onto the gable end of Kingdom House in the town centre, a perfect backdrop what with the celebrated birds sculpture just happening to be situated below.”

Promoted by Go Glenrothes and supported by Fife Council, the event triggers the start of a wider celebration of Glenrothes’ public art heritage, with the town also soon to host a a new film and exhibition detailing town artist David Harding’s work.

The shows run every half hour from 7pm on Saturday October 13, in North Street, Glenrothes town centre, and is free admission.
