Hi There Budding Treasure Hunters

The Gala have put together a wee walking treasure hunt to keep you occupied during the holidays.

Click to download the CLUES doc for printing. Or alternatively a copy can be collected from the Tain & District Development Trust hub between 9am and 1pm Monday - Friday.  Instructions for returning the answers to  clues are on the sheet.

Good Luck!


2020 Events Cancellations

Gala Week Announcement

It is with regret that we announce that the 2020 Tain Gala will not take place this year due to the current situation with Health and Safety being our number 1 priority. 

Vintage and Classic Car Rally

With regret this years Vintage Car Rally, due to be held on Sunday 21st June 2020, is cancelled due to the current situation.

Peat & Diesel Concert

This also includes the postponement of the Peat & Diesel concert, which was due to take place on Friday 3rd July 2020. We are working with Peat & Diesel Management Team and a rearranged date at this time has been agreed for Friday 25th September 2020 in the Marquee on Tain Links.
HOWEVER, if government guidelines do not permit this we will do all we can to establish a new date for 2021. All tickets will be valid for new date.

If the new date does not suit you, you can return your tickets to the address below along with your name and address. On receiving your returned tickets, a refund will be sent to you in due course.

Gala Fun Day

We will also be assessing, depending on other factors, if we can have a Gala Fun Day that weekend in September but a final decision on this will be taken in due course.

Although some communities are talking about celebrations when lockdown and restrictions are lifted, we have to be very thoughtful of the situation we find ourselves in. We have to consider that by this time it might not be right for us to have such celebrations as we do not know what lies ahead for us in the next few weeks/months. 

But rest assured as in the past 36 years Tain Gala has provided many events for the Community and we will continue to do so when the time is right.

Our 2020 Gala Queen, Attendant, Princess and Prince will be kept for next years Gala.

In conclusion – Thank you for your support in the past and in the meantime stay safe.
