Evening Events

Live Music

Our fortnightly, free music concerts feature some of Scotland's finest emerging and established musicians. Working in partnership with Live Music Now Scotland, musicians respond to the national art collection and our programme of temporary exhibitions. We also host international performers and offer a smaller programme of experimental music working with Edinburgh Napier University.

By Night Events

Throughout the year, we organise a programme of special, bespoke events responding to our exhibitions and permanent collections. Recent events included talks, tours and music performances from Wounded Knee, Small Feet, Little Toes and Withered Hand in our exhibition From Death to Death and Other Small Tales in July 2013; Fringe comedy events in Tickling Jock in August 2013 and a special Hallowe'en By Night event inspired by our exhibition Witches and Wicked Bodies featuring the Eccentronic Research Council with Maxine Peake on vocals.

Monthly at the Portrait Gallery, we have 'Insight' sessions where you can join curators for special tours of our exhibitions.

From Death to Death and Other Small Tales: By Night took place on 5th July 2013.
