Gig On A Truck - Summer 2022 Tour

Free concerts coming to a community space near you!

Perth Theatre’s celebrated Gig On A Truck is hitting the road again this summer with a series of performances across Perth and Kinross.

The portable stage that brought music and amusement to thousands in schools, care homes and communities during 2020 and 2021 will present free gigs by local bands and singers in community locations, at local events and in care homes during the first two weeks of August.

The gigs are free to attend (entrance ticket required for Perth Show) with no booking required.

About the project

Gig on a Truck will also be setting up in car parks and gardens to entertain the residents of Duchlage Court and Richmond House in Crieff, The Grange in Balbeggie and Ochil Barchester, Charterhouse Court and Carpenter Court in Perth.

Gig On A Truck was nominated for The Community Project of the Year at The Stage Awards 2021. Horsecross Arts, the creative organisation and charity behind Perth Concert Hall and Perth Theatre was awarded the Best COVID Response and Reinvention Award at the Perthshire Chamber of Commerce Business Star Awards 2021.

‘Working within the care sector is challenging at the best of times, but delivering an independent arts project of this scale, under such difficult and complex circumstances, is an impressive achievement. Through Gig on a Truck, Horsecross Arts facilitated moments of connection, joy and escapism to vulnerable and isolated communities in Scotland, but also made an important acknowledgement of the truly grave and often forgotten impact of the pandemic on the care sector.’
