“Alive and Kicking” Festival

I am very pleased to be able to invite you along to the 10th Alive & Kicking festival. A massive thank-you to everyone who makes it possible – especially the Minerals Trust for providing funding for this and the festivals leading up to this special anniversary.

Please sign-up to our e-mail newsletter to stay informed about our events and activities.

This year, we’re introducing a new format to the festival.

The festival will kick off with our Quiz Night at The Railway Hotel on Thursday 26th July 2018. This is followed by our Family Cinema Evening on Friday 27th July, were we’ll show Peter Rabbit, whilst you can enjoy delicious fresh popcorn.

Our schedule for Saturday 28th July is bursting at the seams. The family activities kick off with the under 5’s Teddy Bear Picnic. The fun continues with children’s favourites including a bouncy castle. For children, the day draws to a close with an ever-popular Chippy Disco. For music fans, we’ll have a Traditional Scotish Folk Evening where we’ll welcome back The Gorms, plus local group Strings & Things.

The Festival Finale will take place a week later when, on Saturday 4th August, Jersey Tones will take to the stage. They will be supported by local band Destination Anywhere.
