Our March meeting will be on Tuesday 26th March at 7pm at The Bach, 31 Meadowside.
 
Join us at Blether Tay-Gither this month to remember and celebrate the life of Fiona MacLeod. 
 
Fiona was originally from Perthshire, spent some of her childhood in Ireland and had lived for many years in Brittany, she regularly returned to Scotland to tell her tales and was Blether’s guest just last October aboard the Frigate Unicorn for the Scottish International Storytelling Festival, where some of us heard her for the first time and saw what a lively and vibrant teller she was.
 
Come along to the Bach to hear some tales and to share some stories from the places she lived, or memories of Fiona.  All are welcome to join in and you may just wish to listen. Hot drinks and cakes are available in the welcoming and unique environment of the Bach. 
 
There’s a suggested Donation £3 and we hope to see you there.
