Gala Week in Luthermuir this year runs from 2nd-8th June and promises to be a fun-filled week of events. On Wednesday 4th June there will be a Ladies Night – a pamper and shopping evening with a complimentary glass of wine on arrival and a finger buffet served during the evening. Encore Dress and Vintage Agency of Fettercairn will be providing a Fashion Show. Several top-name shopping stalls will be there: The Body Shop, Pampered Chef, Handbag Heaven, Ann Summers, Carlotta’s Chocolates (Brechin), Not Just for Kids (Montrose) to name but a few. Pamper Zone will be providing nail treatments and Irene Russell will be giving taster CACI facials. There will also be Reiki taster sessions, makeup and hand massage. This over 18s evening will kick off at 7pm and run until 9.30pm.
Following the success of last year’s event, the male cooks of the village are gearing up for a repeat performance on Friday 6th June. The Cookery Demonstration will feature new recipes and perhaps even new faces. Tickets will include a glass of wine and tasters of the dishes demonstrated.
Gala Day on Sunday 8th June will once again feature a Fun Dog Show, Highland Dancers, stalls, games and of course refreshments in the form of teas & homebakes or Beer Tent & BBQ, depending on your preference! New to Gala this year, there will be the opportunity to have a go at Archery with the team from Mearns Archery, have a caricature drawn by DV Cartoons and 2Wit 2Woo Owl Rescue Centre will have some of their birds of prey on display and there will be a chance to handle them and have your photo taken.
Plans are still developing and more stalls and features are being added to Gala Day all the time. It is also hoped to run a children’s sports event on Monday 2nd but this is yet to be confirmed. Tickets for the 4th & 6th June will be on sale prior to the events and numbers are limited, so best to buy in advance. Tickets for the Annual Gala Raffle will go on sale mid-April. Anyone interested in bringing a stall to Gala Day or in assisting with any of the other events should contact Susan on 01674 840260, or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
