Arts and entertainment


West Lothian offers a wealth of opportunities to enjoy and take part in arts.   West Lothian Council's Community Arts team delivers a continuous programme of arts events and activities in Howden Park Centre (new window), the gallery at Linlithgow Burgh Halls (new window) and at other venues across West Lothian.   It supports and develops all aspects of the curriculum in schools.   West Lothian's voluntary arts groups provide opportunities to take part in everything from film to quilt making, jazz to weaving in local communities.  The Community Arts team administers an arts grants scheme available to these groups and to individuals.  

The "new" Howden Park Centre puts arts back at the heart of the West Lothian community.   To find out  what's on this season visit (new window)

A singular landmark building at the heart of the historic town, Linlithgow Burgh Halls (new window) reopened in April 2011 following a £5.2 million redevelopment.   It  is now a unique venue that celebrates the rich heritage of Linlithgow and provides stylish, modern facilities to meet current demands.   Today it is a venue with elegant spaces for hire, a visitor attraction, an art gallery, a restaurant/café, an education centre and much more.

The downloadable Howden Park Centre and Community Arts News Brochures on this page give information on the current season of performances, classes and events.
