The Oban Times - - News -

FORT Wil­liam Town Team is de­lighted to an­nounce that its ap­pli­ca­tion to the Big Lot­tery Awards For All fund has been suc­cess­ful.

The ap­pli­ca­tion for nearly £ 3,000 is to fund street per­form­ers from Ed­in­burgh-based Cir­cus Alba to take part in this year’s High Street Christ­mas Gath­er­ing, which will take place on Fri­day Novem­ber 27, be­tween 5.30pm and 8.30pm.

The fund­ing in­cludes the hire of the Dun­cans­burgh Halls as a venue to run cir­cus skills work­shops and some ra­dio ad­ver­tis­ing.

Town Team trea­surer, Jackie Clif­ford, said: ‘ We are thrilled that we have been suc­cess­ful in ob­tain­ing this fund­ing, which has en­abled us to bring such ex­cit­ing cir­cus per­form­ers to en­ter­tain the Fort Wil­liam com­mu­nity at our High Street Gath­er­ing.’

The per­form­ers, who in­clude sev­eral win­ter-themed stilt walk­ers, a ma­gi­cian, a con­tact jug­gler and a glow jug­gler, will be en­ter­tain­ing the pub­lic in the High Street be­tween 6pm and 8pm on Novem­ber 27.

As part of the fund­ing pack­age, Cir­cus Alba will be run­ning a free work­shop for young peo­ple, from 9am to 10.30am the fol­low­ing day in the Dun­cans­burgh Halls.

Young­sters tak­ing part in this work­shop will have the op­por­tu­nity to ex­hibit their newly ac­quired skills by join­ing the Ro­tary pa­rade in the High Street at 11.00am the same day. To book a place on the work­shop, email Karen Dean on: stay@lochview.co.uk.
