Double Celebrations for Perthshire Amber Festival 2015!

Bumper year for Amber and Scottish Thistle Awards Success

18th November 2015. As the leaves fall from the trees in Perthshire and autumn turns to winter the 11th Perthshire Amber Festival has come to a close after ten days of fantastic music.  The festival finished last week (Sunday 8 November) and with over half of the 18 concerts sold out well in advance and an overall 80% of capacity filled, we are confident that they will have gained on last year’s audience numbers of over 10,000.  Visitors from 27 different countries travelled to Scotland to enjoy our ever-popular music festival.
