ARBROATH plays host to the very first ‘Slightly-Delic’ music and arts festival tomorrow (Saturday). The event combines lots of fantastic local talent and it promises to be a fabulous evening of entertainment.

Red Shed will present the show from 6 p.m. to 12 midnight at the Scout Hall, Keptie Road, across from The Pondie.

Red Shed Promotions organiser Jill Henderson commented: “Arbroath and the surrounding area has a wealth of music and artistic talent and this event is going to showcase some of that. We hope to make the ‘Slightly-Delic’ Festival a regular yearly event as the town sorely needs something unique to bring people together and enjoy the fact that summer is on its way.”

Local musicians, poets and artists will get together to present a unique evening of fantastic music, merriment and mirth.

Jill continued: “We have acoustic acts from Andy Spiller, Rufus Hok, Grant Malcolm, Dennis Arnot and Nick Hunter, The Sibyls, Ryan Standbridge, Connor O‘Leary and Your Theory.

“There is also clever contemporary poetry/storytelling performances from Knotbrook Taylor, Kev Bruce and Neil Paterson.

“We will also have outstanding art & crafty fab felt work, puppets and crazy things, contemporary jewellery and sensational ceramics from Carole Storm, Sarah ‘Jellipot’ Woods, Fran Marquis and Pesky Pixie.”

She concluded: “There will be free funky face painting from ‘Funky Faces’ - oh, and a stilt walker to make you laugh!

There will also be free punch and cream eggs.

Tickets, £3, can be booked on 07518 467697, or pay at the door on night.
