History


Sea Stories
Alex Patience and Donald McNeill, 1st August 2014, Balallan
 

Beautiful stories, lovely warm music. Thank you so much. Please use this hall for more shows/stories/music

Magical evening in a magical setting. Great cuppa and baking and company. Worth the trip from New Zealand

I really enjoyed the evening - it made me think that there is little story-telling in Berkshire! And it made me feel envious!  This is just such an old/ancient skill - thank you.

I enjoyed the storytelling immensely.  It was good to hear traditional stories being kept alive as they would have been for centuries.  Please try to keep the tradition alive.

Loved the stories accompanied by music.  Took me back to my childhood days of listening to stories - more please.



Pirates and Mermaids 
Poorboy, 1st - 3rd May St Peters Hall,

Taigh Dhonnchaidh and Bernera Community Centre.

“Brilliant.  Thoroughly enjoyed his performance. Interesting, the 2 stories entwined. More, more, more.”

“An amazing tour de force by the actor- gripping throughout. Thanks for the opportunity to see it here in Uist”

A remarkable monologue by Cameron with plenty of emotion and style!

Amazing show! Can't believe one actor could be so engrossing to watch. Really high standard show.

This was a fantastic performance! Cameron has bags of energy! Loved the accents esp Grandma B.  Looking forward to more productions by 'Poorboy'.  I'd marry you!

Wonderful, warm and enchanting performance. Great storyteller please bring us the next instalment. Thank you

“Really really enjoyed.  Had brought the children too and it’s great we all had the opportunity to attend this and experience a ‘live’ show. Much better than T.V”

“Very moving; well tailored to the village hall. You draw people in! Thanks.

”I was forced by my wife to come tonight and I am so glad that I came, it was so brilliant.  The acting was superb, full of emotion, and the biscuits were quite good as well. Thank you.”
 


 

Scottish Dance Theatre - 24th - 26th March 2014 Sporsnis

Balivanich and Tarbert
 

Excellent.  So pleased to have the opportunity to experience top quality dance at a local level.  An honour.

Cleverly sculpted, very well presented & highly entertaining.

Really interesting performance and valuable commentating from the dancers. Good stuff!

I liked the part where they were building that hut thing, that was probably the best part. I enjoyed it very much. I had a good night. Thanks!

Wonderful, very privileged to see such quality dancing and so sad that so few people came to the performance.

Excellent performance, feel very lucky that this group and others come to Balivanich hall.

Absolutely fascinating, primeval, stimulating, very impressive and professional.
