Aboyne Community Theatre has undergone a refurbishment.
It was closed for three weeks for the provision of new seating, flooring and a new loop system for the hard of hearing
The reopening was marked by a special mini-festival to celebrate the work of Muriel Spark.
It included a double bill of vintage films and a meet-the-author event, when Olga Wojtas read from her recently-published first novel “Miss Blaine’s Prefect and the Golden Samovar”, and talked about her literary journey.
David Eastwood, of Aboyne Arts and Theatre Development Group, who organised the mini-festival, said: “There have been many compliments about the new seating.
“We are really grateful to Aberdeenshire Council for having refurbished the theatre to such a high standard.”
