Abbey Theatre

3-4 September 2016

The Abbey Theatre Club has been in its current location since 1964 when extensive renovations turned this derelict building into a working theatre.  Following a complete refurbishment in 1995 with the help of National Lottery Funding, the theatre now boasts a 79 seater auditorium, full backstage dressing facilities and extensive storage space for scenery, props and costumes.  The Abbey Theatre Club produces a number of plays every year, including a pantomime which is often a completely original production. Productions cover a wide range of tastes, from Scots comedies to thrillers and musical plays. The Club also has an active youth group. Run as a charity, the running of the Abbey Theatre Club and the upkeep of the building is the effort and responsibility of a group of volunteers. Tours of backstage area will be available.

Anderson's Institution of Elgin

new

17 September 2016

Anderson’s Care Home was first opened in 1832 following the remarkable bequest of Andrew Anderson to his home town of Elgin. As a child, he lived a very harsh existence, sleeping in the ruins of the Cathedral with his widowed mother, relying on the generosity of local people. After joining the East India Company’s private army as a young man, he quickly climbed the ranks and made a fortune from his conquests. Leaving a generous £70,000 in his will to provide a home for fifty children where they would be educated sufficiently to enable them to earn a living and to give a home to ten aged persons, Andrew obviously remembered his roots. Category A Listed Greek Revival style to a design by Archibald Simpson (architect of St Giles Church), Anderson’s is now a lively care home with Heritage Garden. Visitors are invited to enjoy ‘A Day in the Life of Anderson’s’ exhibition in the main hall, in addition to the gardens and Easton House. Please use the main entrance on Institution Road. Access by guided tour between 2-4pm www.andersonscarehome.co.uk
