To mark this weekend’s Closing Weekend Festival at Rothesay Pavilion, this week we take a look back at the Rothesay Revellers, who entertained thousands of holiday visitors at the famous building with their programme of summer entertainment until the 1990s.

This picture, which appears on a postcard lent to us by Bute Museum, was taken in 1984 or 1985 and includes the following.

Back row: Norman McLeod, Tommy Fordyce, Maimie Sandilands, Ian Miller, Bernadette McMillan, Robert Craig, Janie McKinnon, David Miller, Margaret McMillan, John Callaghan.

The girls seated at the front include Pauline McCubbin, Debbie Lucas, Jean Tough, Bridget McKean, Frances Wilshin and Mary-Jane Horsburgh.

Many thanks to Margaret McMillan for supplying almost all the names!
