Join the local Musicians in the Royal Dunkeld Hotel Bar

8 August @ 8:00 pm - 19 December @ 10:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Thursday, repeating indefinitely

Free Entry

Every Thursday Evening from 8pm
Join the local Musicians
Royal Dunkeld Hotel Bar, Atholl St, Dunkeld PH8 0AR
Every Thursday evening local musicians gather and play in the bar. It adds a lovely atmosphere to a bar that sells real ales and a whole selection of other drinks including tea and coffee. The Woodlands Bistro next door serves a good menu of food for those who want an evening meal. We recommend booking a table (yes it does get busy) and retiring to the bar after your meal. Please note these musicians are not paid, they do it for their own enjoyment, so do not expect it to like a concert on a stage. Royal Dunkeld Hotel: 01350 727322

September 2019

‘Seeing the unseen’ Exhibition

30 September 2019 @ 10:00 am - 26 January 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Daily until Sunday 26th January 2020
‘Seeing the unseen’ Exhibition
Aberfeldy Watermill, Mill Street, Aberfeldy, PH15 2BG.
The common purpose for three artists, Matt Storstein, Paul Martin and Jill Martin Boualaxai is to convey delight in the meaningful materiality of the world. Their works seek out the exceptional in the seemingly mundane; exploring the constant ebb and flow of the world around us. They use a similar contemplative and evocative approach which looks beneath the surface of things to discover the history and poetry of their subjects. In these works there are signs which trigger memory and knowledge, some of which remind us of past experiences and some which convey energy or excitement. We are open seven days a week 10am-5pm, (11am-5pm Sunday). 01887 822896 and  info@aberfeldywatermill.com

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens at Pitlochry Festival Theatre

A Christmas Carol at Pitlochry Theatre

21st November to 23rd December (various times and days)
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, adapted by Isobel McArthur
Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Port-Na-Craig Rd, Pitlochry PH16 5DR
A bright, bold new adaptation of the Dickens classic – one of the most loved yuletide stories ever written. In one ghostly, Christmas night, miserly businessman Ebenezer Scrooge receives a series of unexpected supernatural visitors who are determined to show him the error of his ways. Scrooge learns to pity himself and to love his neighbour – but is that enough? A fantastic, festive tale of redemption and compassion packed with feel-good festive music and song, dancing and joy. Rejoice with us in the Christmas spirit! Isobel McArthur is one of Scotland’s brightest, new writing – and acting – talents, who was last seen on Pitlochry’s stage in the award-winning The Monarch Of The Glen. Now she focusses her creative talents to rediscover the heart of Dickens’ timeless tale.
