Family-owned Forbes of Kingennie Country Resort near Broughty Ferry has announced the launch of ‘Kingennie Events’ – a programme of gatherings, fayres and celebrations designed to put the venue, renowned for its weddings, dining, fishing and golf, firmly on the Dundee social scene map.
The events programme launches on 30th October with a glamorous Kilts and Cocktails Charity Dinner to celebrate Forbes of Kingennie’s 20th anniversary. The evening will be in support of TCCL (Tayside Children with Cancer and Leukaemia) and will feature a charity auction for top prizes, including a Dundee United Luxury box and Lunch for 4 at Darcy Thompsons, followed by a cocktail masterclass at the West House.
On 27th November there will be a Comedy Night, brought to the Broughty Ferry venue by Breakneck Comedy, the team behind regular sell-out comedy events in Aberdeen. The night will feature five top Scottish comedians – Gus Lymburn, Chris Henry, Liam Withnall and Gary Meikle – all fresh from their stints at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and looking forward to testing their material on the Angus audience.
December will see the resort host three Christmas Party Nights (11th, 18th and 19th) boasting an exquisite three-course dinner, which will include fresh Forbes of Kingennie produce, and entertainment by a popular covers band, Pepperpot on 18th and 19th, and a DJ on the 11th.
To finish up 2015 in style, the resort will host a glittering Hogmanay Dinner Dance on 31st December. An adults-only celebration, guests will be treated to a delicious three-course dinner before dancing into 2016 with the unbeatable Staffin Island Ceilidh Band.
The events and celebrations continue into the New Year with a Burn’s Night Ceilidh on Saturday 23rd January where you can enjoy a dram and a dance to The Cutting Edge Ceilidh band along with a traditional haggis, neeps and tatties buffet.
Those attending Kingennie events are encouraged to make the most of their time at the resort by sampling the Waterside Restaurant’s new menu, which features Forbes of Kingennie’s own pork, fruit, vegetables and free-range eggs. The Forbes Family connection doesn’t stop there, with other menu ingredients coming from family member Bel Forbes’ Butchers in Edzell and a variety of other local suppliers.
Libby Forbes, Marketing Manager at Forbes of Kingennie, said: “We are really looking forward to the events season and meeting new people who perhaps haven’t been here before. We are delighted to be working with local suppliers, including Monifeith Cabs which are offering guests to the Comedy Night 25% off their fares.”
