elcome to our fourth What’s On Guide - bringing together fantastic events from our teams across culture, sport and leisure. We offer residents and visitors to Angus a wealth of services which are changing lives by inspiring healthy, active and creative lifestyle choices through engagement with our sports centres, country parks, theatres and venues, museums, galleries, archives and libraries. Throughout 2018, ANGUSalive is celebrating Year of Young People 2018 with a series of events including the ‘Worst Children’s Jobs’ (see page 7), an interactive event at our libraries which allows you to try some of the jobs young people did back in the day #YOYP2018. As we fall back into autumn, our packed programme of events, walks and workshops will nestle you into the cooler season nicely! With a wealth of talent at our Webster Memorial Theatre; from The Adele Songbook, Jimeoin to our 2018 family panto Aladdin (please see the reverse of this guide), or get outdoors at our country parks where we get all Christmassy for festive fun weekends throughout December (see page 30 onwards). In this season, get ready for a spooky Halloween with witches and ghosts at our museums and country parks, with tales of witches, broomstick and wand workshops as well as a ghost trail. We continue to mark 100 years since woman secured the right to vote with our ‘Pioneering Woman in Angus’ exhibition at the Signal Tower Museum, Arbroath (see pages 14 & 15), a series of speakers will highlight their achievements and inspirations. Marking the centenary ending of WW1, our museums also have a series of events commemorating the veterans and remembrance. We also welcome back amateur and professional artists to enter our Winter Exhibition at Forfar’s Meffan Museum & Art Gallery (see pages 18 & 21). Fall in love with reading this February in our libraries as they take you on a journey through the book ‘Guess How Much I Love You’. You can also look forward to celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 7 March 2019 (see page 9) by dressing up as your favourite or inspiring literary character. To continue the celebration of talent, we will again host the ANGUSalive Sports Awards in March (see pages 24 & 25), where we celebrate the success and achievements of sporting individuals, clubs, teams and volunteers across the Angus area. The team are ready to welcome you to our facilities and venues across Angus - keep up to date with us on the socials and book at www.angusalive.scot/tickets
