Summer Sundays are Back! But we need performers…

bandstand

The Friends of MacRosty Park, The Pavilion Cafe and Perth & Kinross Council are bringing bands back to the MacRosty Bandstand during Summer 2018.

Traditionally our beautiful bandstand would have been used every Sunday to bring music and entertainment to Crieff.  We want to bring this back (on a smaller scale).

To do this we need local bands, entertainers, drama groups, poets and storytellers to work with us. 

We are offering our bandstand as a unique (FREE) venue (electricity and seating provided free) for performances to take place on the following dates:

  • 6th May
  • 2nd June
  • 1st July
  • 5th August
  • 2nd September

We want a diverse and fun programme to showcase new talent and allow the old pro’s to shine. The programme will be well advertised in advance and we are confident that the weather will be on our side – if not, people will still turn out (it is Scotland after all!)

As an added incentive… If you wish you can fundraise for your group during your performance you can and the Pavilion Cafe will be running a BBQ or Ice Cream stall and donating a share of the profits to the performing group(s).

If you are interested in performing or would like to know more, please contact us using the form below.

MacRosty Park #3 of 22 things to do in Crieff!

MacRosty Park is now #3 in the list of things to do in Crieff on TripAdvisor and we are delighted! below are some of the reviews that got us there…

31st July 2017

Lovely park which is kept clean and tidy. Lots to do for all ages. Children will love it here and the cafe is excellent

14th July 2017

MacRosty Park is a delightful facility on the west of Crieff. Lots of grassy plains, seating, tables, play areas, a burn runs through it and lots of free parking.

5th June 2017

What a park!  Having two young boys, I have become a connoisseur. This is probably the best we have visited. Set over different levels, it has a natural charm, with a river running through it, mature trees, and a beautiful bandstand. Main attraction for us was the modern play area with water features beside the Pavilion Café. We’d be here every weekend if we lived locally.

7th May 2017

A real fun park to take kids too, thoroughly recommended. It’s a nice walk up from the car park too. Cafe under new ownership and the quality has improved. A cheap, fun day out for all the family!

Please do take some time to review our park on TripAdvisor; positive feedback from locals and visitors helps shape our work and fundraising efforts. 

and…. for those of you who want to know…
