The Findhorn Bay Festival is almost here - and so is the Glitter & Sparkle ball! Last year was an amazing night - the town hall was completely transformed with mapped projections and excellent music!
This year - more of the same but with our own DJ Monkey Magic spinning after the Loveboat Big (swing) Band.
Tunes will be in the area of Electroswing & speakeasy in the theme of the evening, with some funky business weaved in!
Time to get tickets if you’re in :)GLITTER & SPARKLE FESTIVAL BALL featuring The Loveboat Big Band 'a firmly established crowd-puller, with crowds delighting in dressing up, to match the shows' (The Scotsman), dashes of comic cabaret, mind bending magic and electro-swing DJ set from DJ Monkey Magic.

The Gin Hostess will be serving complimentary Red Door Gin upon arrival and Red Lion providing bar service throughout the evening. Put on your glad rags and dancing shoes - come have the ball of the year!
Saturday 29 September, Forres Town Hall

Find out more and BUY YOUR TICKETS at www.findhornbayfestival.com or pop into our Box Office at 86 High Street, Forres #FindhornBayFestival

A nice video about the different kinds of intelligence that we have - AND that could be recognised in schools, and everywhere.
I know most of us know about these, but the more the word gets out the better :)
