Well, wow! What a fantastic weekend we’ve all had! Blantyre Gala weekend started on Friday 8th June 2018 with a brand new event, which we hope will become an annual feature! The Blantyre 80’s Party Night!
Thanks to an amazing grant awarded to us from BIG Lottery, we were able to host a spectacular evening in Stonefield Public Park, attended by 300 people.
Large marquees provided by Crown Marquees accommodated guests along with a brilliant beer tent, with thanks to The Hoolet’s.
Music was provided by Barry Watt, our excellent DJ from Bespoke Event Services.
300 party revellers descended upon the festival site and danced until late. The costumers were bright, the hair was large, the shoulders were padded! We were amazed to see so much effort put into the fancy dress costumes, which all added to the summer evening, party atmosphere!
Everybody was so well behaved and enjoyed themselves. Feedback has been incredible! We hope to supersize the 80’s night making it more accessible to many more people next year.
Thank you to everybody who came along and got the weekend off to a flying start, and not forgetting all our very own committee members for their enthusiasm, dedication, fun and planning in making all this possible.
