An Inverness DJ music collective is planning an online gig to raise money for the Samaritans.
The team behind Inverness's newest club night, Household, say they are passionate about keeping the music playing during the coronavirus restrictions.
Their online gig will take place next Friday (May 15).
Promoter, 23-year-old Ross Mackay, who is currently locked down in Nairn with his parents, said he hoped the club night would bring people together to enjoy classic and new electronica and club music.
Mr Mackay, a white-water rafting instructor and businessman, said that while the Household crew had only managed to put on one night prior to lockdown, he hoped to continue building an audience for the group's events for better times to come.
He said: "We are a small collective who are passionate about music and promote club nights here in Inverness.
"Household are currently running a weekly live stream every Friday from 9pm until midnight via Facebook on social media platform Twitch so we can still engage with our followers.
"The response so far has been great with between 125 and 150 people watching and chatting about the event online."
The DJ set is streamed live from the home of Adam Fairbairn and his partner Zoe Williams, who live in Culloden. The couple have a music studio in their home.
Mr Mackay continued: " On May 15 we will be hosting a fundraiser livestream where we will be donating all the money made to the Samaritans Inverness. The charity plays an imperative role in supporting vulnerable people all over the Highlands."
