Bakehouse cooks up award

A Gatehouse arts and events organiser has lifted a business prize.
The Bakehouse was honoured at this year’s Arts and Business Scotland awards. The company, run almost entirely by volunteers, scooped the New or Returning Sponsor Award jointly with Dumfries design company Weesleekit. They won the accolade for bringing the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre Tour to the Crichton in Dumfries in July – the fifth time the tour has come to the region.
Chrys Salt, who runs the Bakehouse, said: “We’re delighted. The Bakehouse is run by a great group of volunteers. The award is for everyone on the board and everyone who helps it to work.” Arts and Business Scotland promotes relationships between business and culture and holds an awards night each year.

Chief executive Barclay Price said: “Weesleekit’s sponsorship was central in enabling 1,600 people in this rural area the opportunity to see world-class theatre. Such community commitment by a local company is a worthy winner.”
