Variety Show to re-open the doors of Montrose Town Hall

ANGUSalive is delighted to announce that Montrose Town Hall is set to open its doors to the public again, following its use as a covid vaccination centre.

Built in 1854 as the Melville Church, the building became the town hall in the early 1960’s, growing into a key hub of community activity. In addition to local events, it has also welcomed high-profile acts with varied events such as The Proclaimers, Average White Band, Ocean Colour Scene and Cream DJ’s including Seb Fontaine, who was the last act to play at the venue before the forced closure due to the pandemic.

On Sunday 7 May, the Hall will officially reopen with a Variety Concert featuring local talent who will tread the boards for a charity event, with funds raised going towards local charity DEBRA. Performers on the night include Robina Addison with The Gordon School of Dance, Fraser McGlynn with The Song Shop, Beryl Cooper with The Esk Academy of Dance and The Town Band, with local entertainer Joe Wishart as compère.

Audrey Hood, Theatre and Venue Manager with ANGUSalive said: “We’re delighted to be re-opening the doors to Montrose Town Hall again after being closed since March 2020. The Hall is an important link to the community with many varied events normally taking place. It has been such a delight organising this variety concert alongside Robina and the other collaborators as we showcase local talent from the area. We hope everyone can come along and support these acts and enjoy the re-opening of the Hall whilst supporting DEBRA – the local charity we are delighted to support with this special event.

Robina Addison MBE, Principal of Gordon School of Dance added: ”It is amazing to have the Montrose Town hall back open. It has always been one of our favourite places to perform given its importance in the town and it never gets old seeing it packed out with families, friends and guests visiting the events that go on. We hope that’s the case with our Variety Concert.

DEBRA is a charity dedicated to people living with the rare, extremely painful, genetic skin blistering condition, Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) also known as ‘Butterfly Skin’ which causes the skin to become very fragile and tear or blister at the slightest touch.

Tickets can be purchased with a minimum donation of £5, with a percentage of the proceeds going to DEBRA. You can book tickets for the Variety Show or book Montrose Town Hall for celebrations, corporate events, clubs or any occasion at
