Great en­ter­tain­ment for Oban win­ter fest

The Oban Times - - LEISURE -

How about pop­ping along for a night out in a pop-up venue at Moss­field Park, Oban, to hear some favourite lo­cal bands dur­ing Oban Win­ter Fes­ti­val?

The or­gan­is­ers prom­ise two great nights in the huge in­flat­able white ‘igloo’ dome, com­plete with a dance floor, which can take 200 party go­ers.

The Moss­field fun be­gins with a fam­ily night out on Fri­day November 23. You can hear two of Oban’s favourite bands, Chunks and Neon Sheba, along with Calum Jones and the Trad Project.

‘Mem­bers of the com­mit­tee heard Calum and the band at the Tiree Mu­sic Fes­ti­val and knew they must book him for Win­ter Fest,’ said a spokesman.

The mu­sic will play from 7pm to 10pm, with the gates open at 6.30pm. The evening is billed as an al­co­hol-free, fam­ily-friendly night out with plenty of eats from Dun­tar­ran Foods.

Chunks will cel­e­brate the band’s 20th an­niver­sary next year, dur­ing which time they have grown to be one of Oban’s most pop­u­lar bands. Neon Sheba’s rock fu­sion also a firm favourite in town. The fol­low­ing night the venue and the al­co­hol-free em­pha­sis on fam­ily fun con­tinue with the same venue, times and food the same but this time you get to pick the mu­sic at a silent disco.

Head­phones will be on of­fer to lis­ten through to two dif­fer­ent mu­sic tracks, or take your own mu­sic along and plug the ear phones in. A venue of peo­ple all danc­ing away to their own choice of mu­sic is a sight to see.

There will also be spots where you can take along your own playlist for it to be in­cluded for oth­ers to en­joy.

Re­mem­ber there is also an­other ‘igloo’ at this year’s Oban Win­ter Fes­ti­val. There will be one for sto­ry­telling and en­joy­ing snacks in dur­ing the night of magic and ad­ven­ture for chil­dren when the woods at Glen­cruit­ten will be trans­formed into an il­lu­mi­nated back­drop.

The fes­ti­val pro­gramme is pub­lished this week – be sure to pick up your copy!

Oban favourite Chunks will play the ‘Igloo’ for the fam­ily-friendly night at Moss­field.
