Culture in the Scottish Borders

Live Borders is the culture, sport and leisure trust for the Scottish Borders. At the heart of our work is a commitment to make our communities healthier, happier and stronger.

We offer residents and visitors to the Scottish Borders a wealth of services that inspire positive lifestyle choices, through the use of our libraries, leisure and sports centres, museums, galleries and archives, country park, cinema, town halls and community centres.

We are a charity: every penny you spend with us is reinvested into supporting active, creative and healthy communities in the Scottish Borders. Many of our museums are free and we welcome donations.

We offer a range of museums, galleries and attractions, libraries and creative activities across the region: find out more in this section of the website and join in the fun.
