Organisers of Portsoy’s Scottish Traditional Boat Festival are delighted to have secured guest speaker Brian Pettifer for their annual fundraising dinner.  Star of many acclaimed films and TV shows, including the 2016 remake of Whisky Galore!, largely filmed in Portsoy, Brian will be returning to the town for the event taking place on Friday 23rd March at The Station Hotel, Portsoy. 

Festival Co-Chair, Keith Newton said, “We are delighted Brian has agreed to join us at the dinner and are very much looking forward to welcoming him back to Portsoy and hearing from him about his interesting and varied career.  It goes without saying that Brian’s presence at the dinner has attracted a lot of interest and tickets for the event are selling very well indeed. With thanks to the Festival’s many supporters for their generosity, there will also be some great items up for auction on the evening.” 

Tickets are on sale now priced £30 each and include a 3 course meal and welcome drink, available by contacting Keith Newton, keith@portsoy.org  Proceeds from the dinner go towards funding the operational costs of the Festival, which takes place this year on June 30 & July 1 in Portsoy.
