What’s on in Scotland this April 2024


Set the tone for spring with exhibitions, dining experiences and shopping

curated by Adrianne Webster

Scotland comes alive in the spring. Or at least, that’s what I like to think as someone who’s averse to the cold, windy weather of winter. The sun peeks its head out and it’s time to explore. This month, there’s a roster of exciting events to head to, from exhibitions honouring the iconic artwork of the likes of Andy Warhol, to new shop openings in Scotland’s capital. Enjoy!


Anna H. Geerdes Exhibition

When: 11th April from 5-7pm

Where: Compass Gallery, 178 W Regent St, Glasgow, G2 4RL

Artist Anna H. Geerdes will be back at Glasgow’s Compass Gallery for the fourth time this April with an exhibition highlighting some of her most powerful and compelling paintings.

In this latest collection of works, Anna asks “What to do? Where to look? Why painting?” In her search for answers, these new paintings have evolved. Landscape is the main subject, skilfully and beautifully executed, but there are areas of disruption, disturbance in the logic of perspective and sometimes unexpected intrusions of other places or different times…is it the past? Is it the future?

Anna was born in Katwijk aan Zee, the Netherlands and moved to Scotland in 1991, where she graduated from Gray’s School of Art achieving a 1st Class BA Hons Degree in Painting Fine Art.

Pick up some chocolate at Knoops Edinburgh

Where: 106 George Street and 11-15 Victoria Street

The weather might be a bit brighter but it still feels chilly out there – which is exactly why you should swing by one of the recently-opened new Knoops stores in Edinburgh city centre.

The expertly-crafted chocolate drinks brand was founded in 2013 by chocolatier Jens Knoops, with the concept – aptly named ‘Knoopology’ – being based around a carefully curated percentage menu that offers chocolates to suit every taste and mood.

This process is simple; choose your chocolate %, milk, and extra flavours like sea salt, orange zest or chilli to be made into a hot chocolate, milkshake or iced chocolate. Delicious.

Head to Andy Warhols: The Textiles Exhibition

Where: Dovecot Studios, 10 Infirmary St, Edinburgh,  EH1 1LT

When: 26 January – 18 May 2024

Campbell’s Soup, Marilyn, Flowers, Debbie Harry… some of Andy Warhol’s best known and most iconic works as a leading figure of the Pop Art movement. But few know that he was as dab a hand at clothing prints as he was at wall art.

New exhibition Andy Warhol: The Textiles will take you on a journey through this unknown and unrecorded world of his designs. Showcasing over 35 of Warhol’s textile patterns from the period, depicting an array of colourful objects; ice cream sundaes, delicious toffee apples, colourful buttons, cut lemons, pretzels, and jumping clowns, this exhibition demonstrates how textile and fashion design was a crucial stage in Warhol becoming one of the most iconic artists of the twentieth century.
