Doune Gala

The Doune Gala takes place in June each year and is a fantastic week of events for all the family.  The 2020 Gala was one of the few events anywhere to go ahead despite Covid-19, albeit in a highly modified format.  Congratulations to the organising committee!    

See separate Gala Page for this year’s plans – also the FB page at More Info below for latest news of the plans.
