Summer is coming to an end but the September Inverness Events keep coming! We’ve got comedy, football and a book festival among the great Inverness events to look out for this month. So, mark your calendars and get ready to dive into the top 3 Inverness events this September according to Inverness Taxis.
Gellions AFC Vs Kickabout Aberdeen
Saturday 9th September
Last season Gellions AFC travelled to Aberdeen to play Kickabout and it was a huge success raising over £2600. Now the Aberdeen side travel to Inverness for the return leg to help tackle an ever-growing problem.
Tickets for the match are free, but donations are accepted at the gate
You can also donate to their GoFundMe page if you’d like to help Mikeysline continue their great work supporting people in emotional distress and struggling with their mental health.
JOSIE LONG: RE-ENCHANTMENT
Thurs 21st September
‘After defeat, re-enchantment is necessary’, said Lola Olufemi. This thought inspires Josie Long’s brand-new show of stand-up infused with humanity, compassion and some brief political rants. The triple Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, underdog Fringe hero and delirious new mother (the first person to have two babies) returns with a show about the changes wrought by time, passion, moving to Scotland, and loving the world under – let’s face it – difficult circumstances.
“Stunning, riotously hilarious”
Expect thoughtful hilarity at Eden Court!
28th – 30th September
