Western Isles Lottery has announced final arrangements for the much-anticipated musical events which will accompany the switch-on of the Christmas lights in Stornoway next Tuesday (November 26th).

With Peat & Diesel’s under-14s gig at the Nicolson Institute fully sold out, the timetable has been tweaked so that the late evening gig at the Town Hall is now open to all ages, although under-16s must be accompanied by an adult.

Doors will open at the Town Hall at 9.30pm and Peat & Diesel will be on stage at the earlier time of 9.45pm, with a projected finish time of 11.30pm. Remaining tickets for the Town Hall gig are on sale through Events shop on North Beach.

To make the gigs even more special for young fans, Western Isles Lottery have got hold of some blow-up guitars, mics and trumpets, allowing Boydie, Innes and Uilly to get the benefit of a full back-up band.

The Christmas lights event starts its build-up tonight (Friday November 22nd) as Stornoway Amenity Trust judges set out on their judging round for Christmas window displays.
