Packed pro­gramme of event planned for Oban

The Oban Times - - News -

WE’RE head­ing into an­other re­ally busy week­end, and it’s so busy that I don’t think you could do it all no mat­ter how hard you tried, writes Oban town am­bas­sador Kay Mac­Don­ald.

It’s start­ing with a per­for­mance by the Fox and Hound Theatre Com­pany on Fri­day night in the Cor­ran Halls, a Ten­nessee Wil­liams dou­ble-bill and a new piece after which there’s the chance to speak to the cast and ask ques­tions.

On Satur­day it’s all go start­ing with the weekly parkrun at Gana­van Sands for run­ners and walk­ers at 9.30am. Then it’s on to the sum­mer craft fair in the Cor­ran Halls from 11am to 5pm. There’s a tea dance in aid of Can­cer Re­search UK in Glen­cruit­ten Par­ish Church Hall at 2pm for those who fancy a wee dance and nice tea and cake and, to top off the events in Oban, Skip­in­nish Ceilidh House has the West Coast whisky feis from noon till 6pm for those of you who, like me, en­joy sam­pling the best Scot­land has to of­fer in whisky and gin.

That’s not all, though. It’s also Taynuilt High­land Games day – if you’re not al­ready ex­hausted at the thought of run­ning round all the things availa- ble to see and do – and not for­get­ting that Water­stone’s has a fan­tas­tic book sign­ing be­tween 2pm and 4pm with au­thor Brooke Mag­nanti.

In the evening there’s time to re­lax at Oban Phoenix Cin­ema with a live screen­ing of An­dre Rieu. I can’t think of a bet­ter way to fin­ish off a busy day.

Of course there are lots more things avail­able to do, in­clud­ing boat trips, At­lantis Leisure Cen­tre, the seal­ife cen­tre, the ma­rine cen­tre at SAMS which is fab­u­lous ... the list goes on and on, in­clud­ing my high­light of last week, Des

pi­ca­ble Me 3 at the cin­ema. I think I laughed louder than all the chil­dren there.

En­joy your week­end ev­ery­one, how­ever you choose to spend it. I may well have to try to get round as much as I can so I may be a wee fraz­zled heap by Sun­day.

I think last week’s photo was too easy as ev­ery­one seems to recog­nise it from the statue of Nep­tune on the Rail­way Pier. Hope­fully, this week’s will have you guess­ing again.
