Another big event is coming to Strathaven this weekend, with the annual fly-in day at Strathaven Airfield being followed by the annual Hangarfest music festival.
The event is on Saturday 16th June, and kicks off at 2pm running to 5pm when you can enjoy the sight of a range of microlights and aeromodels soaring the air. Watch a hovercraft in action – and then listen to live music with local bands. There will be food, BBQ, drinks, Fairtrade tea and coffee.
Bands playing in the afternoon include Paul Gostelow - The Approximates - The Mike Doris band Skud, Pete & Lochie – Revolution.
Parking and entry donations will be accepted for Strathaven's charity ACT to help towards their "Large Play Project" and local community groups.
This afternoon event will be followed by Hangarfest from 7.30pm-11.30pm. Hangarfest is the closing musical event of the Strathaven folk and blues fly-in, featuring the best talent from the Strathaven area and beyond!
Featuring the best rock bands from Strathaven and beyond, Hangarfest will entertain you till the dark hours!
Tickets for Hangarfest are £10 each and are available from The Weavers, Craig’s newsagents and The Barbers Shop - however, there will also be a “pay on the gate” option.
Local bands set to play at Hangarfest include Derringer, Wasted Radio, Jaynestown and The Kitsch, for what should be a great night at the airfield.
