Aspire Linlithgow

St Michael’s established its major projects fundraising campaign, Aspire Linlithgow, in 2022. We’re nothing if not ambitious: having successfully raised nearly £400k from grants and donations to refurbish St Michael’s unique Crown of Thorns spire, we are now embarking on not one but two major new fundraising campaigns.

We are extremely grateful to the community and the church for so magnificently supporting the Crown of Thorns campaign. We are also very thankful to our grant funders: Historic Environment Scotland, Church of Scotland General Trustees, Scottish Landfill Communities Fund and the Pilgrim Trust.

You can help us attract major grant funding for our new campaigns by demonstrating that our aspirations to transform Cross House and to safeguard the church building have widespread support.  

Next Event: Meet Mary Queen of Scots

What question would you like to put to Mary Queen of Scots? In the acclaimed drama production ‘Fotheringhay: An Audience with Mary Queen of Scots’ Mary, played by actress Jane Collier, reflects on her turbulent life. Each performance will be followed by a Q&A where you can ask that burning question.

Performances take place in the Adam Room, Cross House on Friday 27th September at 3pm, and Saturday 28th at 2:30pm and 7pm, and are suitable for all aged 12 plus. Tickets are now on sale at £17.50 on Eventbrite (plus booking fee) and in Far From bookshop (cash only). Thanks to our friends at Historic Environment Scotland, your ticket also entitles you to 20% off admission to Linlithgow Palace – Mary’s birthplace – for 1 week from the date of performance.

All profits go to Aspire Linlithgow’s A House for the Town campaign.
