Welcome

 

Hello

 

Falkirk & District Arts and Civic Council (FDACC) is proud to present the Tryst Festival – our annual celebration of the work of arts groups, clubs and organisations from across the Falkirk area.

 

We are sure that this year’s festival has something for everyone including music from the very best in blues to choral masterpieces, movie classics and Broadway standards; exhibitions of artwork by the talented members of Falkirk Art Club; showcases featuring the next generation of talented young dancers and performers; festival events such as our Personality and Young Personality of the Year awards, our ever popular ‘Top of the Town Quiz’ night and a fantastic evening of poetry, prose and music. Add into the mix an inspiring floral art demonstration, a spectacular opening event and some of the very best magic and you’re just beginning to get the flavour of this year’s Tryst.

 

We look forward to welcoming you to the Tryst Festival 2018.
