An independent local museum run by volunteers, the building was opened in 1926 and has two galleries and a library/meeting room. It may be small but it has one of the best local collections of any museum in the country. From items of international importance such as the Viking ‘Hostage Stone’ and a Bronze Age jet necklace to an 18th century beggar’s badge and a Victorian Punch and Judy, it tells the story of the people of Bute and the flora and fauna of the island.

THE DISCOVERY CENTRE THEATRE
The Isle of Bute Discovery Theatre is housed within Rothesay’s famous 1924 Winter Gardens on the promenade, employs nine people during the height of the season and was refurbished to digital with new seats and cup holders being added in 2015. The cinema is a wonderful addition to our festival, maintaining the close intimate atmosphere that we love and only a stone’s throw from our other three venues.

Trinity Church, built in the plain Gothic style, has been a place of worship since 1845 to the present day. Weekly services are held at 11.00 a.m. on Sunday mornings. Situated in the heart of Rothesay, its central location also makes it an ideal venue for Community events, including the Annual Horticultural Show. It can seat up to 700 and because of its excellent acoustics, regularly hosts concerts, including events organised by Bute Arts Society.
