So it was announced this morning that everybody’s favourite childhood act, the Singing Kettle, are retiring.
Aberdeen will host the very last live performance by the troupe, which will be at the city’s Music Hall on February 15 and will be one of the dates on the farewell “Big Party Show” tour.
But news of their final sign-off tour was met with widespread sadness on social media with thousands taking to Twitter to express genuine disappointment at the Singing Kettle crew’s decision to hang up their instruments.
Here’s what you said online:
