Singing Kettle Artie Trezise at House of Dun
Children can read, sing and dance their way through Artie’s Tartan Tales taking place at the National Trust for Scotland’s House of Dun in Angus on Saturday, 7 June.
Artie Trezise, formerly of The Singing Kettle, will perform a variety of stories, encouraging children to read along and enjoy themselves. Drawing mainly on traditional Scottish folklore that has been passed down through generations, expect lots of fairies, witches and magic and a few songs, too!
In a music career spanning over three decades, Artie has performed for 5 million people as well as producing over 80 releases, including DVDs and CDs. Taking a break from Singing Kettle duties, he is currently in the middle of a solo tour performing some of his favourite Scottish stories in the hope that it will encourage children to read more often. He has been awarded an MBE for Services to Children’s Theatre.
The show time is 2.00pm/3.00pm and all tickets cost £6.00. For more information, contact 01674 810264
Overlooking the Montrose Basin, the House of Dun is an 18th century country house designed by Robert Adam, the foremost Scottish architect of the period. Home to the Erskine family, of whom John Erskine Dun was a prominent figure in the Scottish reformation, the house was also home to writer and poet Violet Jacob in the 19th century. Fine Georgian décor can be found inside along with the Trust’s Hutchison and Stirling collections, containing some of the finest paintings and furniture in the charity’s ownership.
The house sits in its own formal gardens with parkland and woodland beyond. There features a Victorian walled garden and wooded den, as well as the Montrose Basin Local Nature Reserve further afield.
Cats eye view of the Cats Protection Dundee branch
We featured the Cats Protection Dundee branch in one of the first dozen videos produced for The Dundee Channel when the Channel launched in 2009. Today we returned to get an idea of what exactly is involved in looking after the many hundreds of cats this local charity comes into contact with every year. Bob Smith from the Dundee branch gave us the guided tour and talked us through how Cats Protection goes about its work. Click the photo to go to our site. This is the first part of our visit more will follow.
