High Street exhibition

Do we really value our High Streets or are they simply past their sell by date? With vacancies up and shopper numbers down is it time to re-think? In Scotland the High Street began as a market place, a hub of social activity - busy, raucous and messy. This exhibition shows their evolution, our changing shops and shopping habits and the impact this has had today. Specially commissioned films gather people's stories of the High Street, from butchers and bakers to professors and planners. It looks to the future with remedies that make our High Streets good value, vital in creating unique and thriving places. Find out more about the High Street exhibition here.
