Brechin’s Caledonian Railway Station is to turn in to a live music venue this month when it hosts female foursome Dorec-a-Belle.

June is set to be a busy month for the county and the Railway Station is set to play its part with the band performing on platform one on June 20.

The event is part of a packed month - with the Angus Glens Walking Festival 2015 kick offing the events. The festival runs from June 4 to June 7 and features a full programme of walks for all levels of fitness.

On Saturday, June 6, Arbroath Armed Forces and Emergency Services Day will see a parade of serving armed forces, veterans and cadets marching through the town centre to Victoria Park, where there will be a host of stalls and activities.

Throughout June, there will be lots of other opportunities to enjoy live music across Angus, including traditional Irish music from The Kilkennys at the Webster Theatre in Arbroath on June 14 and Dundee ‘supergroup’ Anderson, McGinty, Webster, Ward and Fisher appearing at Montrose’s Links Hotel on June 25.

Glamis Castle provides the magnificent setting for the Strathmore Highland Games, which are also on 14 June. “We have a full calendar of events showcasing the finest athletes on the Highland Games circuits,” revealed Lorna Cochrane of Strathmore Highland Games.

“There’s the British Tug-of-War Championships, along with the Heavies flexing their muscles at the Caber Toss and other Strong Men competitions and, of course, our Pipe Band Competition, which will culminate in the Mass Pipe Bands at the end of the day.”

Glamis Castle is also the venue for an outdoor performance of the highly-popular play Mr Stink on June 26.

Based on the bestselling children’s book by Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams, this play promises an evening of ‘fun, humour and a heart-warming message’ - with the added bonus of being able to tuck into a picnic while the actors bring the story to life in the beautiful walled gardens at Glamis Castle.
