Stirling's Hogmanay event has been cancelled due to dangerous wind speeds.
A decision was made to cancel this evening's Hogmanay Concert on the grounds of public safety. The decision was made at an emergency meeting at 8:30pm this evening, when the windspeed had increased.
The concert site was experiencing gusts of wind over 30 metres per second. These gusts were causing structural damage to the stage and were blowing over portaloos etc.
Obviously this is the last thing we would want tonight but the safety of our audience, the crew and the performers is paramount and could not be guaranteed with the exceptionally strong gusts of wind.
Ticket holders will be fully refunded.
If you paid by card then you will receive an automatic refund beginning 5 January.
If you paid by cash then please return to where you purchased your tickets from Monday 5 January onwards.
