Music Nights at Glenlivet Hall

Jim Hogg is organizing what he hopes will be monthly music nights at Glenlivet Hall and would like to hear from anyone who might like to play, perform or just come along and spectate.
The idea is for local musicians to come along and play together in an informal way as we did when the Pole Inn used to have its music nights or at the weekly Stramash in Dufftown. Each player would have a turn at choosing what we play so there's no need to be scared off if you have a limited repertoire. Players of all standards and all ages are welcome. As happens at the Stramash, everyone is provided with music so you don't need to know everything off by heart.
Although the bulk of the music will be Scottish, we'll welcome any easy listening style on any instrument, but we're certainly looking for fiddlers, accordionists, keyboard players, mouth organists, guitarists, tin whistlers, etc.
Singers are also welcome, and we can provide piano/keyboard accompaniment if required. Community singing is also on the cards, as are the odd recitation, demonstrations of highland dancing and perhaps some piping. There will also be some dancing for audience - both Old Time and Ceilidh as required.
We hope to hold these nights on the first Friday of every month, starting on Friday 2nd April. There's no entrance charge, but the Bar will be open and there will be a raffle to raise funds for the Hall.
Sessions will run from 7.30 pm to 10 pm so it's not a late night out. In order to ascertain the level of interest in this venture, Jim would like to hear from anyone who might like to play, sing or come along to listen or dance. Please contact him by e-mailing to or telephoning on 01807 590 276.

New clubs initiative

In an attempt to utilise the hall more, and get more people involved in activities at the hall, the committee has launched a 'new clubs' initiative. If you would like to get involved in any form of club or activity in which the hall could play a part, please let us know by completing the online questionnaire

New clubs season

In October most clubs will start their new season. The choir has been singing for a few weeks already and the archers will start shooting indoors again. The fixtures for the first half of the darts season have been set and are now available on the darts page.

First wedding ceremony takes place in Glenlivet Public Hall

Bride and groom On Saturday 20th June the first wedding ceremony took place in the hall when Rev Sven Bjanardson married Ian Mathieson to Ann Duff. The ceremony was attended by some 70 friends and family and was followed by a dinner and an evening reception attended by another seventy guests. Feedback on suitability of the hall for this type of occasion was very positive.

Car park resurfaced

After a winter of trouble, floods, puddles, holes and ice we have now resurfaced the car park at the hall. The holes have been filled by local farmer Jim Innes and a load of chuckies, supplied by Keith Naylor and Fred Grant from Ballindalloch were spread out and compacted into a smooth level surface by John Grant, free of charge! Many thanks to all who helped us with this important task - just in time for a certain wedding...
