A fun filled family Gala was the hive of activity at Chapelton near Newtonhill recently. This well attended outdoor event was clearly a welcome change with both children and adults alike thoroughly enjoying the activities and atmosphere of the day.
But the star of the show must go to the Comedy Night, held that evening. A complete sell out and a “rip-roaring success”, according to Rachel Rollo, Digital Marketing & Events Manager for Chapelton.
Rockhopper Comedy were responsible for the line-up which included Jamie Tait, Declan McGuigan, Violet Wilde, Scott Christie, Peter Wood with headliner Martin Bearne. Cheesy, farcical, downright absurd and hilariously funny is the only way to describe the evening – the perfect ingredients for a light-hearted, sidesplittingly fantastic experience.
Billy Alexander, CEO at Grampian Autistic Society (GAS) agreed adding, “The comedy night was such a bundle of laughs, it was great to see so many people out enjoying themselves.
“A huge thank you must go to Chapelton as without their expertise and know how, not to mention their event field, this event would never have taken place.”
Both events took place in support of Grampian Autistic Society and mark the start of a year of events the charity has planned to raise both funds and awareness of the work it does. The next event will be a black-tie ball on 6th November this year – just 11 weeks away! Details of the Ball will be posted on the charities’ social media channels and website with press announcements leading up to the event.
If you would like to find out more about the Ball or the charity itself and how you can support it, please call their Business Development Manager, Lisa Barnard on 07542 024988.
