Food Bank

As we fast approach that time of year when everyone has a bit too much to eat and drink, we wanted to do something to help those whose lives are far from merry. Given that we welcome hundreds to our festival every year we wanted to do something charitable while we’ve got you all together to celebrate whisky and our fair city.

This year we’re once again, in association with Drumchapel Foodbank, having a raffle with a difference…

You can’t buy a ticket for this raffle: to get one you must swap one item on the list below for it. You can get as many tickets as you like for as many of these items that you bring along with you to the festival. The more the merrier, as they say!

“What can I win?”, we hear you cry. Well, for each session we will be giving away 5 pairs of tickets for next year’s festival. That’s 10 pairs of tickets for next year to be won over the two sessions!

Once we have had a chance to recover after the festival, we will do the draw, live on Facebook from Bon Accord, and track down those lucky winners. Keep your eyes on our Social Media channels for updates.

Pop along to your local supermarket or grocers and get involved and you might be coming along next year with a friend for free!
