With summer well and truely here the Glenesk Folk Museum and Retreat visitor centre has plenty to keep you busy over the next few month.

Starting on Saturday (July 27) and throughout August the centre will serve evening meals.

Explaining the reason behind the evenings, manager Brian Park said: “ The evenings in Glenesk are so beautiful.

“We want to offer people a chance to be here to enjoy them with good food and drink and a warm welcome from our staff.

“Even if it is raining, Glenesk is such a lovely place to be on these long evenings and the view from the Retreat is especially stunning.”

Many of the evenings will be themed, starting with an Italian night this Saturday.

The following Saturday, August 3, The Retreat will be open all day and evening from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Saturday, August 10, will see The Retreat hosting a quiz night.

“From 7 p.m. we will be offering supper with a raffle and prizes, to raise funds for our wonderful folk museum,” commented Brian.

“Tickets are £5 per person and we need teams of two to four people.”

On Saturday, August 14, the Retreat will host a Gourmet Night and August 24 will see a curry night at The Retreat.

“We do urge people to book in advance for these evenings. We welcome and all enquiries and bookings on 01356 648070 and look forward to seeing everyone.”

The Retreat is open daily from 10 a.m to 6 p.m.

The fully accredited Glenesk Folk Museum is enjoyed by people all ages drawn to its reconstruction rooms, its children’s activities and its fascinating objects and images telling so many stories of life in Glenesk.

The newly opened display of agricultural tools in the Green Shed stables is very popular. On Saturday, July 27, visitors can catch live music there from a young fiddle duo.
