Music and Arts

Wiston Lodge has had a strong connection with music and arts for many years – The Tinto Folk Festival was held here from 1995-2001. This helped us appreciate the value of the arts as a developmental tool in education.

We have hosted the Tinto Summer School which is designed to encourage young people into the Scottish music scene – young adults have developed from students to tutors over the years. Other programmes have included furniture making, using wood harvested within the grounds, and a variety of natural arts days that have tied into the environmental programmes on offer.
