The glorious days of Scottish Music Hall and Variety Theatre

 

Mr Johnny Beattie MBE

9 November 1926 - 9 July 2020.


Dear Members and Friends,


It is with great sadness that I have to write to inform you that our Hon. President Mr Johnny Beattie MBE has passed away.
Johnny was a tremendous support to the Society and to our cause and he will be remembered with great affection.
Sadly Scotland has lost another Scottish Comedy Legend. 

RIP Johnny and thank you so much for all that you have done for our Society. You will be greatly missed by us all.  All at the Scottish Music Hall & Variety Theatre Society send our Deepest Sympathy to the Beattie Family at this very sad time.
