Beat Festival in the grounds of Cullen House.
2000 fans attended the Beat Festival
in the grounds of Cullen House on Saturday to raise funds for Save The Children Fund. This was organised by Lord and Lady Seafield and committee. A total of sixteen beat bands were present, mainly from the northeast but others from as far afield as London, Manchester, Falkirk and Inverness. Top of the bill was Malcolm Clarke and the Cresters from London followed by Toggery Five from Manchester, The Copycats, Jacobeats, The Roadrunners, The Phantoms, and many others. The beat groups played in the open air during the afternoon but later, because of the blustery wind the music and dancing were moved inside a large marquee, which was tastefully decorated.
