Welcome to the 72nd Gatehouse Gala!
I am delighted, on behalf of our Gala committee, to welcome you all to Gatehouse-of-Fleet Gala 2023.
We are all excited to once again bring an extensive pro-gramme of events for you to enjoy throughout the week. Gatehouse gala is something we are all extremely proud to be part of. Now running for over 70 years , it really is a highlight of the Gatehouse calendar. it is always fantastic to see so many locals and visitors come out to support and enjoy the various events on offer. This year we have some extra events for children on gala day itself and a super addition to our gala parade.
It would be impossible to provide such an extensive programme of events without the commitment, hard work and dedication of my committee and so I would like to ex-press my sincere thanks to each and every one of them. There is so much preparation that goes into the gala and their continued support throughout the year is what en-sures the continuance of our gala.
Of course, the success of our gala every year is also due to you, the wider community, sponsors, tourists and residents alike. Each year, so many of you turn out, offering your time, financial support and expertise to ensure each gala is as memorable as the one before it.
I hope you all have an amazing gala week filled with fun, laughter and of course good weather, and I very much look forward to seeing you at some point over the course of the eight days!
