Good site for panto poster? Oh no it wasn’t!

Alex Shepherd contacted the Herald recently about the banner advertising the forthcoming ANGUSalive panto ‘Sinbad The Sailor’ which occupied a commanding position in front of the Declaration of Arbroath statue which stands on Dundee Road at the bottom of Infirmary Brae.

Mr Shepherd said: “Spend thousands on a very apt monument, place it in a prominent site, light it tastefully with spotlights, then do this!”

ANGUSalive has confirmed that so far this is the first and only complaint regarding the banner’s positioning.

An ANGUSalive spokesperson said: “We are sorry to hear of upset about the position of the banner and apologise for any concern that it has caused. If the member of the public would like to discuss further, please get in touch with the theatre manager.

“The site has been chosen as it is a high traffic route.

“We will review the current position of the banner with a view to another appropriate location within the vicinity.”

As we went to print yesterday (Thurdsay) the advertising banner had been relocated to just

in front of bushes to the left of the statue on Dundee Road.
