The Wighton Heritage Centre for the Study and Appreciation of Scottish Music was opened by Dr. Sheena Wellington. The Centre houses the world-famous Wighton Collection of early printed music and performs a vital role in furthering the study and development of music in Scotland. The Wighton Database is accessible from computer terminals, and the majority of the works may be consulted on microfilm or in digital format. Where a need to view original manuscripts or print works can be demonstrated, these will be made available, subject to security provisions governing their use. The Centre caters for a wide range of interests, from music enthusiasts listening to recordings, through children practising their skills, to amateur and professional recitals. Other music activities not directly related to the spirit of the Wighton Collection may be accommodated from time to time, subject to the space available and acceptable sound levels. The Centre can be hired for events such as seminars, provided that these do not conflict with its primary purpose.
