MacRoberts cements its relationship with the arts in Scotland
MacRoberts was delighted to take home one of the top prizes at the Arts and Business Scotland Awards last week, for its partnership with The Cumnock Tryst.
The Placemaking Award is one of five special partnership awards that were presented at the 30th annual Arts & Business Scotland Awards ceremony in Glasgow on the evening of 23 March. This category recognises a partnership which has shaped the cultural activities in a particular geographical area to celebrate the very best of Scotland’s creative, cultural and historic wealth, and can show how cultural tourism can raise the profile of Scotland at home and abroad.
Sir James McMillan, founder of The Cumnock Tryst said,
“We are delighted that our partnership with MacRoberts LLP has led to this marvellous recognition of the impact that The Cumnock Tryst is having in my old town. It came as a big surprise as there were many amazing candidates in the Placemaking category”.
John Macmillan, MacRoberts Managing Partner said of the award,
“MacRoberts has a long tradition of supporting the arts in Scotland, and we were delighted to be involved with The Cumnock Tryst which not only celebrates classical music but also celebrates local talent and communities. To have won an Arts and Business Award just makes it all the more rewarding and we are delighted that the hard work of the team behind The Cumnock Tryst has been recognised.”
MacRoberts, which was founded over 150 years ago, has a long established relationship with the arts in Scotland and is very proud of the support it has been able to provide to several Scottish arts organisations. Current sponsorship agreements and support are currently in place with Scottish Opera, V&A Dundee and the Glasgow School of Art Choir.
Jamie Sansbury, founder and Musical Director, the Glasgow School of Art Choir said,
“We are thrilled that MacRoberts has generously agreed to support the choir and its Fifth Anniversary Gala Concert. MacRoberts’ sponsorship of the arts is invaluable to many organisations throughout the country, allowing them to fulfil their ambitions in providing truly enriching cultural experiences for their audiences.”
