Since the Rock Challenge┬« heats in Inverness last month, two local schools from Ross and Cromarty have spent the last few weeks finalising their performances and will this week travel around 150 miles to The Caird Hall to compete in the prestigious Scottish Final.  

The Scottish final will begin early in the morning giving the students from Alness Academy and Dingwall Academy an entire day to have fun, watch and support the other schools from across Aberdeenshire and Angus before competing for the title of 2015 Rock Challenge® Scottish Champions.

  • Tickets are still available to purchase through The Caird Hall Box Office on 01382 434940

The UK Rock Challenge® and Be Your Best Foundation are also delighted to also announce a National Final will be held at Milton Keynes Theatre on Monday 6th July. The winning school from the Scottish Final will qualify to this National Final to compete against teams from the North and the South of England in another specular celebration of youth creativity!

The Blue Men of the Minch

The Blue Men of the Minch, said to be descended from slaves, have the power to

summon up storms and sink ships, saving any slaves on-board. Years ago the legendary

Blue Man, Lewis, was cruelly separated from his lover Skye by the evil slave traders.

One day he hears news that could change everything. Will they be reunited?

Dreams Of The Big Top

Our performance was inspired by the story of Hetty Feather by Jacqueline Wilson.

Hetty has to leave the children's home aged 14. She was always intrigued by the

circus, and so our version explores the idea of Hetty being able to follow her dreams

and find her own path, though it may be bumpy at times. Everyone's good at something.
