While we're restricted by COVID-19 social distancing rules...
...we're doing our best to keep in touch by holding play readings on Zoom and working on our new radio play / podcast - a comedy about a coach company and its rather motley assortment of staff. But the Committee is thinking of ways we can meet up in person for some well-overdue socialising as & when the rules permit, so keep checking back for information and subscribe to our blogs to be notified when things are happening.
JOIN US FOR A DRINK... (Once the Coronavirus is away!)
In between organised social events, you can usually find an assortment of FADS members in the Fintry Inn around 10pm on a Thursday night.... Feel free to pop along and join in!
Meanwhile, if you have any suggestions for social events or would like to hear about what we're planning, you can email the social committee: firstname.lastname@example.org
BURNS QUIZ NIGHT
Saturday 18th January, 2020
Not just a quiz, expertly crafted and MC'd by David Smith - there was musical entertainment, poetry and a fully-interactive rendition of 'Tam O'Shanter', lead beautifully by Jackie Smith. Throw in an address to the haggis by a knife-wielding Paul Anderson, tunes from Andy Barr and his guitar and great catering once again from May Anderson and you have yourself a Classic FADS Night! 🥳
TRIP TO ORKNEY
Thurs 16th to Sun 19th May, 2019
Nine FADS delegates, along with five Young Farmers and two canine tour mascots (Bess & Meg) took 'Mrs G' and the SSSYFC's play 'Strictly Sex Factor On Ice' up to Orkney, playing at Birsay Village Hall and the Orkney Theatre in Kirkwall.
The plays were one part of the trip, but the socialising with our friends from Birsay Drama Club was just as important and we enjoyed a fantastic weekend of Orcadian hospitality!
Friday 29th March, 2019
10 teams participated in the first ever FADS Quiz Night, with the 'Strumming Numpties' emerging victorious (winning by half a point!!) By popular request, the questions will be easier next time! :)
PIZZA, PROSECCO & PICS PARTY!
Saturday 15th September, 2018

BIG ASS WITH BIRSAY
Saturday 21st July, 2018
A truly epic social evening with our Orcadian friends from Birsay Drama Club, who travelled over 300 miles to perform two of their one-act plays in Fintry. Food, drink and a veritable buffet of party pieces, from Yoga Farts to clog dancing to showtunes. Oodles of fun!
FADS' 40TH BIRTHDAY PARTY!
