Oban Win­ter Fes­ti­val calls for young ty­coons

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

Call­ing all young en­trepreneurs and those who would like to be.

Oban Win­ter Fes­ti­val will be hold­ing a St An­drew’s Day fair this year espe­cially for young peo­ple to show­case their tal­ents and busi­nesses.

As part of the fes­ti­val’s in­volve­ment in the Year of Young Peo­ple cel­e­bra­tions, the com­mit­tee is host­ing a Young En­trepreneurs Mar­ket on Satur­day De­cem­ber 1 at Oban Dis­tillery’s Old Milling Room.

Stalls will be free of charge and are avail­able to ev­ery­one up to the age of 30.

You might be in busi­ness al­ready, like tal­ented Taynuilt pho­tog­ra­pher who is mak­ing a name for her­self with her busi­ness, Eilidh Liv­ing­stone Art and Pho­tog­ra­phy, and will be ex­hibit­ing work at the mar­ket.

‘Or it might be that you make things as a hobby and are con­sid­er­ing start­ing up your own busi­ness so would like to test the mar­ket place,’ said a mem­ber of the fes­ti­val com­mit­tee.

‘The stalls are free and are a great way to get your ideas, goods or ser­vices be­fore the pub­lic.’ For more de­tails, email info@oban­win­ter­fes­ti­val.com.

The stalls will be al­lo­cated on a first-come first-served ba­sis.

And young peo­ple are not the only ones who should be plan­ning ahead – it is time to start plan­ning your Christ­mas shop win­dows, with the theme this year, Shim­mer and Shine.

Last year’s fes­ti­val theme was um­brel­las and this year it is mak­ing a joy­ful noise with ‘The Big Racket’, so come and make sound­waves at the win­ter fes­ti­val.

There will also be a work­shop with High­land Glass for chil­dren, where they go along to make shak­ers which they can then use to make a great big noise at the fes­ti­val. This is spon­sored by the fes­ti­val and will be on Novem­ber 24 at the Cor­ran Halls.

The com­mit­tee is putting the fin­ish­ing touches to the pro­gramme for the fes­ti­val, which runs from Fri­day Novem­ber 16 to Sun­day Novem­ber 25. There will be old favourites plus some ex­cit­ing new events, so keep an eye on The Oban Times and the fes­ti­val’s Face­book page.
