Spring has sprung at The Retreat

Spring has well and truly come to Glenesk as The Glenesk Folk Museum opens its welcoming doors for a new season.

On Sunday, March 29, at 3 p.m. people of all ages have the chance to enjoy a wonderful mix of short animated films from all over the world.

“The event is part of Scotland’s Puppet Animation Festival”, explained Joyce Cook, staff member.

“We are delighted that local charity Angus Arts is partnering with us to host these touring films from all over the world. They will be a real treat for all the family.”

The films run to 65 minutes in total with award winning contributions from Brazil, Germany, Hungary, UK in a wide mix of styles and kinds of animation.

There is a story about singing seals, a sweet friendship between a rabbit and a deer, a cat and dog who fight in a very unusual way, and a workaholic whose dream holiday is surprisingly interrupted.

“Some families might want to make a lovely day of it by booking for lunch in advance or high tea afterwards,” said Joyce.

“There is plenty to see and do here, with new exhibitions in the museum and cafe and our nature trail and children’s play area. We are open for meals all through the day. 01356 648070. Tickets for the films are £5/£3 and can be booked by phoning 01561 298173, 01356 648669 or emailing angus.arts@btinternet.com. We look forward to welcoming everyone for a very special afternoon’.
