The last ever ‘Big Dougie’s Family Party’ takes place at Rothesay Pavilion tonight (Friday, July 31).

The man behind the show, Douglas Lyle, spoke to The Buteman this week about how the idea came about and why he feels it’s been a success.

“I’ve been approached by some other venues in the town to take the parties there, but none are really suitable for the event,” he told us.

“But I wouldn’t have done it for all this time if I didn’t enjoy it. And I will miss it.”
