Berwick Visual Arts presents... Metal Militia. A commission by S Mark Gubb featuring Nicholas Barker and Berwick RBL & Eyemouth RBLS Pipe Bands, taking as its starting point the events that led to the birth of the Kings Own Scottish Borderers, on March 19th 1689, when in two hours a militia was raised for the defence of Edinburgh.

Metal Militia - the exhibition at The Gymnasium Gallery, 31 May - 13 July (Wed-Sun 11am-5pm)
A sound and light installation will explore the wider historical discourse around the power of music by bringing together multiple drum samples from heavy metal music to create a powerful and immersive visual experience that is part-gig, part-fairground and part-horror film.
Metal Militia has been made possible with the support of Arts Council England, Arts Council Wales and The Welsh Assembly Government.
