The launch event is set to take place in May (exact dates tbc) and includes gaming and film screenings. See state of the art Virtual Reality on show alongside Spyquest events and retro gaming consoles.
Two exciting exhibitions are set to have their Scottish premieres during the programme, including Bricktropolis (a Lego exhibition) and the brilliant Michael Morpurgo (children’s author most famed for writing War Horse).
Competitions in film making, digital art and writing will take place from May until November, when award ceremonies and celebratory events take place with the winning entries going on display.
