The Glenesk Retreat is holding an autumn party from 6 p.m. on Sunday, October 27, to celebrate a wonderful summer season and look forward to new winter opening hours.

There will be music from much loved accordionist Tommy Newcomen with friends of the Retreat playing fiddle and guitar.

The bar will be open all evening and there will be a raffle.

From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. there will be meals, high teas and snacks.

On request the unique Glenesk folk museum housed at the Retreat, will also be open for part of the evening and there will be a slide presentation of all the highlights of the season.

Tickets are free for the evening with donations welcome towards the Glenesk Trust, the small community charity which runs this popular four star visitor centre offering so many different things to so many different people.

“We are looking forward to seeing familiar faces and new people” explained Brian Park, Manager, “for a truly memorable evening.

“It’s a chance to celebrate our summer season and to hear what people would like for next season.

“We are also launching new winter opening hours of every weekend from the start of November until January 5.

“So there will be plenty of opportunities for people to come and enjoy a warm welcome by our wood burning stove on winter weekends.”

Originally built by a sea captain as a Retreat from the rigours of a sailor’s life, it is now the focal point of glen life and is home to a gift shop and art gallery, licensed restaurant and tearoom, party venue, conference facilities and community room.

During the winter months the Retreat is open only at the weekends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from November 2 to January 5.
