Culture Perth & Kinross are creating a new exhibition at Perth Museum & Art Gallery this autumn, celebrating 100 years of local night life, and are asking members of the public to contributor their own memories and photos.

From nightclubs to music halls, pubs to house parties and from ballroom dancing to acid house raves, our team are looking for your memorable photos, objects, and stories of nights out across Perth and Kinross throughout the years. 

The charitable trust would like to hear from people who want to share their memories of nights out, particularly photographs (digital or print), videos, posters, memorabilia, clothing or anything else that reminds you of a night out on the town. Whether it was last week or last century, they want to hear from you!

Staff will select submissions to be incorporated into the exhibition alongside intriguing photographs, objects and documents from the collections held at Perth Museum & Art Gallery and the Perth and Kinross Archive. The exhibition opens in October.
