Get Ready for Chapelton’s First Gala Day

Our very first gala is set to take place on Saturday 14 August and we welcome families to enjoy a fun-filled day of children’s activities, music, food and drink.

In partnership with Grampian Autistic Society, a local charity which provides support to all ages of people with an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC), the Gala will be hosted in Burgess Park from 10am – 4pm. A follow-on Comedy Night will also take place that evening in partnership with Rockhopper Comedy, with tickets available shortly.

Children can look forward to plenty of activities including a ‘build your own bear’ workshop, bouncy castles and face painting. Live flyball demonstrations will take place with dogs from local clubs Scratch Squad and Findon. A selection of hot food vendors and stallholders will be in attendance on the day alongside Mearns FM who will be providing the music.

Billy Alexander, CEO of Grampian Autistic Society, said: “We are delighted to be working with Chapelton for the town’s first gala day and comedy night, both of which will be raising funds for our charity and going a long way to help the families we support.”

The Duchess of Fife, Director of Elsick Development Company which is leading the build of Chapelton, also said: “We see galas happening as an annual tradition in many towns across Scotland and with the Chapelton community quickly growing we think this is the ideal time to introduce one here.

“This family-friendly event will be packed with plenty of entertainment and activities that we’re sure all ages will enjoy. And in the evening, adults can head along to the Comedy Night which will continue to raise much needed proceeds for Grampian Autistic Society.” 

Children under two years can attend the Chapelton Gala free of charge, while children aged between two and 15 years are ticketed at £2.50 and adults at £5. Family tickets, which admit two adults and four children aged under 16 years, can also be purchased for a cost of £15. Find out more about the event and book your tickets.
