June was a busy month for us, and a pretty raucous one for Perth too! Whilst the city recovers from festival season, here’s a run down of our best bits from this month.
Learn a Living
June saw the launch of DYW’s #LearnALiving campaign, a programme that aims to boost the number of work placements for young people in Perth and Kinross. The campaign went off with a bang, and ads of all shapes and sizes could be found all over the city, including the cleverly designed stickers on petrol pump handles.

Scone in Concert
Fresh off the heels of The Biggest Weekend, Scone Palace went straight on to host Rewind, the retro music festival celebrating its tenth birthday. Crowds from all over Scotland and beyond flocked to the popular festival and the weather stayed nice enough that the grounds of Scone Palace didn’t turn into a mud bath!

City of Culture
Perth Museum and Art Gallery had an eventful month, with the opening of its popular Fearsome Craftsmen exhibit. The attraction was also voted one of Britain’s most family friendly museums by the public.

This month also saw the launch of a new project by Euan’s Guide, the charity website dedicated to providing wheelchair accessible visitor information about Fife to those who need it. The new campaign is chock full of fun, accessible places to visit, and loads of people have been jumping online to praise the site.
