High Life Highland and LCC Live are gearing up for Get Set For Summer later this month.

The charitable event aims to provide the local community with a family-fun day out, completely free of charge.

Les Kidger, managing director with LCC Live, said: “We are getting increasingly excited about this community ‘give back’ event which guarantees to have something for everyone. For the all-day entertainment, you can expect something for everyone with a lively programme of performance talent from across our community.

"We have a great selection of charities, businesses and crafters from across the Highlands coming along to present their local products and services, including the well-loved Highland Dog Bakery – so visitors are welcome to bring their four-legged friends along to this dog-friendly event to pick up a tasty treat."

Get Set For Summer will also feature funfair rides, games, storytime sessions with Bookbug and inflatable items for children.

The event falls on the same day as Armed Forces Day and will feature the Royal British Legion Pipe Band.

Mr Kidger added: “The idea behind Get Set For Summer will always be to give back to the community by promoting all that is available to the public to get involved in across Inverness. We hope the weather holds out for us and that we have an amazingly busy day at the Northern Meeting Park."

The event will run from 11am to 5pm on June 24.

Ollie’s Pops, Juicy Ness, Whisk Away, Red Shank, and Auld Smokey Pizza from the Highland Food & Drink Trail will be participating too, so visitors are invited to ‘follow their senses’ as they walk about the riverside and park in search of an indulgent snack.

The team from the Inverness Castle Experience will be on hand promoting the latest progress on the castle’s exciting redevelopment, and the Highland Archives will have interesting historical displays to view, with special local features including the history of the Northern Meeting Park.

There will also be a showcasing of leisure centre offerings via the highlife membership scheme, with some fun fitness challenges to get involved in.

Members of the public will be in for a chance to win some fantastic prizes in the big Spin-to-Win, including tickets to Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival 2023, and a year’s free highlife membership.

High Life Highland’s chief executive Steve Walsh said: “High Life Highland and LCC Live are really looking forward to the first Get Set For Summer event where you can expect a lively programme of all-day entertainment, performers, competitions, goodie bags and more.”
