Venison Cookery Masterclass @ The Crieff Food Company Ltd
Jan 23 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Venison Cookery Masterclass @ The Crieff Food Company Ltd

We are delighted to welcome back Nichola Fletcher for a Vension Cookery masterclass. Nichola is a renowned chef and author and what she doesn’t know about venison probably isnt worth knowing! Come along and learn how to cook this delicious, versatile and amazingly lean cut of meat.

You will get to watch Nichola prepare some delicious starter and main course recipes using this wonderful local ingredient. Recipes for a formal dinner party to a casual mid week supper. This is an interactive session with lots of chances to ask questions and then you will get to take all the recipes home.

The evening starts at 6pm with welcome drinks, canapes and a chance to chat before moving on to the “meat” of the evening watching Nichola at what she does best and sharing her knowledge all the time. The evening ends about 8pm with a chance to taste all the delicous dishes and a further chance to chat.

Nichola is best known for her work with venison and game. She and her husband John started Britain’s first deer farm in 1973, and Nichola has devoted her life since then to helping people to appreciate, understand and cook venison and other game meats.

Penny Junor: All The Queen’s Corgis @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre
Feb 16 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Penny Junor: All The Queen’s Corgis @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre

The Queen has had corgis by her side ever since she was seven years old and persuaded her father to buy one for the family. The dogs are the Queen’s constant companions and Jenny’s book reveals the scraps and scrapes in which the dogs have been involved.

Daughter of Sir John Junor and school-mate of Princess Anne, journalist, TV presenter and popular writer, Penny Junor is possibly best known for her royal biographies, originating with Diana: Princess of Wales, earning her the label of ‘royal expert’. This is a fascinating and affectionate look at the Queen and her most faithful companions on what really makes our much-loved and longest reigning monarch truly light up.

3.00pm – 4.00pm | £8.50

“BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Bruckner Symphony No 7” @ Perth Concert Hall
Feb 22 @ 7:30 pm
"BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Bruckner Symphony No 7" @ Perth Concert Hall

The first thing you sense is a quiet shimmer in the
air. And then, like some vast mountain rising from
the clouds, the opening melody of Bruckner’s
Seventh Symphony soars majestically towards the
heavens.

Bruckner said it came to him in a dream,
played by an angel – but when Ilan Volkov brings
his searching musical intelligence and emotional
insight to bear on this monumental ‘cathedral in
sound’ the results might well be revelatory. Two
contrasting – but equally inventive – masterpieces
set the scene: an ebullient little symphony from
JS Bach’s son Carl Phillip Emmanuel, and the
witty, electrically-charged Violin Concerto that
Stravinsky intended to be unplayable. No fear
on that score from our soloist Carolin Widmann.

both their brilliance and their sincerity. The contrast
between Schubert’s astonishing last piano sonata
and the virtuoso brilliance and sparkle of Prokofiev
offers an afternoon to remember.
