Paula, our Account Director, features in the May Business Bulletin of Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce. Paula was asked: Which cultural event/experience have you enjoyed most?

See what Paula offered up………..
I wasn’t able to visit the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow but I attended with my cousin the last time they visited Scotland in 1986. I was 16 years old and that was the first real cultural event I’d experienced. It left a huge impression.
We had tickets for the last three days of the track and field event as well as the closing ceremony and it was our first real adventure away from home.
The first day was torrential rain in the morning and we saw absolutely nothing but at lunchtime it cleared and the rest of our time passed in glorious sunshine. We were fortunate to see some world class athletes, although we didn’t see Scotland win a gold medal. The closing ceremony was equally exciting and before we knew it the event had ended and we were travelling back home again.
Talk about a blast from the past…..1986?!
