The annual Stonehaven Folk Festival was held between 10th and 13th July. The whole town was buzzing with official and unofficial events in a number of venues and visitors had a great time. The Tolbooth museum has a commitment to make its premises a hub for the local community and in order to practice what we preach we opened our doors to impromptu music sessions on the Saturday and Sunday. This was a very succesful venture, partly due to the uniqueness of the museum; the favourite 'stage' was inside our prison cell. Over 500 visitors came through our doors during the Festival and was an excellent example of merging different cultural streams. We look forward to even better collaboration with the Festival next year. The image shown is that of Ron Gardiner singing from the cell - no he was not singing 'Please Release Me'.
