“Pack of Lies” by Hugh Whitemore, directed by Stephen Vincent has regretfully been cancelled, following the sad death of Florians stalwart, Johnathan Stuart.

Anyone who has bought tickets should have received a full refund from our ticket agents, with the exception of any costs incurred sending tickets by post.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The SCDA Highland Division Final was on Friday 4th & Saturday 5th April 2014 at 7pm in Nairn Community & Arts Centre.

Fiona and her team have won through to the Scottish Finals, by coming second overall at Nairn.

Another long list of trophies – Fiona’s sideboard is groaning under the weight of the following:

  • Caroline Groves Trophy for Second Place

We went on to the Scottish Final, held in East Kilbride, from Thursday 24th–Saturday 26th April.

We failed to get to the British Finals, but we salute Fiona and her team, who have done very well to progress this far in the competition.

Last, but not least, our 2014 Pantomime will be in December. Don't miss out!
