Eye-popping visuals, stunning surroundings, startling aural landscapes and history brought to life… ‘Shining Lives’ is an event not to be missed.
This October, the singularly gorgeous buildings of the New Lanark Heritage Site are going to play host to a phantasmagoria of light and sound, with the Shining Lives event celebrating the area’s unique history.
Shining Lives will project video and historic images onto the site itself (an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001) to tell the fascinating stories of the people who lived in New Lanark and the surrounding Clyde and Avon areas.
The New Lanark Heritage Site began life in the 18th century, operating as a spinning mill village, located on the banks of the Falls of Clyde. It ran under a new form of social order pioneered by humanitarian visionary Robert Owen.
