What is it about staircases ? Something could be up there or something could be coming down towards you. In our first Halloween video we invite you to tell us what you see at the top of the stairs towards the end of the clip. Over the ten nights surrounding Halloween we’ll bring you more video clips to see your reaction at this chilling time of year.

Glamis Castle Photography Competition

Posted onSeptember 1, 2012

Glamis Castle Photography Competition

Glamis Castle Photography CompetitionThe history, traditions and culture of Angus are an important part of Angus Heritage Week, which starts on Friday, 7 September and runs until 14 September.

Amongst a host of events celebrating the history of the county will be a day exploring some of the Picts’ most important sites and guided tours of the historic kirkyards at Arbroath Abbey and Monikie. More recent history will be covered at Montrose Air Station’s ‘Spitfires Over Angus’ exhibition, which opens on 7 September, while the role a very large dog played in the history of wartime Montrose will be covered during ‘The Bamse Trail’ on 9 September – and dogs are very welcome!

The traditional music of Angus will play a starring role in the Kirriemuir Festival of Music and Song, while there will be fantastic displays of traditional dancing at the Royal Burgh of Forfar Highland Dancing Championship on 9 September. Or how about experiencing the sound of genuine Renaissance music in the medieval setting of Arbroath Abbey on 8 September?

Culture comes under the spotlight, too, with Arbroath Art Society’s exhibition at the town’s library, a photographic exhibition by local students at Arbroath Abbey, and viewings of artworks at Kinblethmont Gallery, near Arbroath, and The Meffan in Forfar. In addition, there will be a Craft Shack event at Arbroath’s Old Ladyloan School on 8 September which will also include an opportunity to visit the old school, which is now home to several arts and crafts studios.

These are only a few of the 40+ events taking place across Angus during the first Angus Heritage Week. To encourage as many people as possible from across Angus and further afield to attend and find out more about the rich heritage of the county, on Friday, 31 August, top photographer Niall Benvie will help the Angus Heritage team launch a fabulous free booklet – The Angus Heritage Week Passport. Available from leisure centres, ACCESS offices, libraries and tourist attractions across Angus, the Angus Heritage Week Passport features facts, quizzes and special offers, such as reduced entry to Glamis Castle of £5 per person and free entry to Glen Esk Folk Museum (Angus Heritage Week Passport must be shown).

There are several competitions in the passport, including Glamis Castle’s Photography Competition, which encourages visitors between 7-14 September to take photographs of the castle and surrounds. At least four of the best photos will be chosen for the 2013 Glamis Castle calendar and the overall winner will receive either a family ticket to the always popular and very scary Hallowe’en at Glamis event or two tickets to a Christmas Carol Concert in the castle.

Niall Benvie has taken many stunning photographs in and around Glamis Castle and will be involved in the judging process. “I am a native Angus man and I’m always interested to see the perspectives of other photographers on my home patch,” said Niall. “It will be fascinating to see how others capture the majesty of Glamis Castle and its beautiful surroundings.”

Niall also shared a couple of his top photography tips. “Keep your compositions simple and clean,” he advised. “Run your eye along the edge of the frame before you take the shot to make sure there are no distractions that are going to spoil the picture. Fill the frame with your subject and include only what you want the viewer to see – get close and stay close.”

To find out more about Angus Heritage Week, pick up a copy of the festival programme from leisure centres, ACCESS offices, libraries and tourist attractions across Angus, Dundee, Perthshire, Aberdeenshire and Fife (or download from www.angusheritage.com) or visitwww.angusheritage.com, ‘like’ the Angus Heritage Facebook page or follow on Twitter.

December 2011 and the plans for serialised drama were laid when G.H.O.S.T. received (and still does) the most amount of page views on the site. There are plans to continue to improve the G.H.O.S.T. brand in 2012 and to continue to involve as many of the local acting community as possible.

April 2011 saw what turned out to be the final episode of Ghosthunter although at the time  no one realised it would be the last. Six months later its replacement G.H.O.S.T. is now the top programme produced by The Dundee Channel.

Ghosthunter was also one of the last series to be recorded in mini DV before the Channel upgraded to DVCAM in 2011.
