Past Events at Kinlochard Village Hall
Below are some snapshots from various happenings at the Hall over the years
Contact Tea Party
For over 30 years Contact the Elderly have been coming to Kinlochard for a tea party. The first host was our own Saffrey Miller who hosted in her house. Over the years numbers grew and KVH is now host to an estimated 100+. Contact the Elderly is the only national charity solely dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation among older people through face to face contact. A large number of Contact Groups, local to the wider area, gather at KVH each summer
There is music, cake and most importantly company!
A great space for a Birthday Party
Any age, any time of year! Make the space your own. If you are a resident and want to hold your 90+ Birthday Party in the Hall, you can hire the hall for nothing!
Art Exhibition - Perfect Day
Students from Glasgow School of Art were so taken by Kinlochard that they decided to put on an exhibition in KVH with the subject being "Kinlochard" The title was inspired by the Susan Boyle world record selling single, Perfect Day. The song was recorded on the jetty from the Community Field.
The exhibition featured many works of art, a photographic piece can still be seen in the hall. There was a great social event on the opening night, which was attended, not only by the students and their tutors but by a large proportion of the local population!
Music and Dance
There are many occasions for music and we have had, folk, jazz, traditional, rock tribute not to mention Phil & Aly, all gracing the cosy stage of KVH
Before the school was closed, KVH was the venue for the annual Panto. This was a truly amazing production which was put on by the Primary School. From the youngest to the oldest, the whole community used to attend. Sadly the school closed in 1998.
The Blank Slates were the last cast to be seen on the stage but we would welcome other productions.
Outdoor Events, Games, Water Sports
A massive sack race at the Kinlochard Commonwealth Games in 2014. Well worth a visit to the Games, where the whole family can enjoy all the fun of a Highland Gathering and also take part in some of the heavy events
