Black Isle Gathering 2019

05 October 2019

Welcome to BIG 2019


The Black Isle Gathering is a biennial all-day indoor 'street market' for community groups, small businesses, craft workers, churches, charities, societies, associations, sports clubs etc which will take over the entire ground floor of Fortrose Academy on SATURDAY 5TH OCTOBER 2019.

If you have any queries, please contact us via the website contact page.

BIG is as free as we can make it, but we ask for a donation from stallholders and buskers who are able to contribute towards the costs of hiring Fortrose Academy and event promotion.  This year we are asking for this in advance, see application form for details

See news pages for the latest info on this year's BIG and our Q and A pages for frequently asked questions.
