There are still some great Inverness Events in January going ahead even with the increasing of restrictions in Scotland.
The First Minister cancelled all of Scotland’s large-scale New Year’s Eve celebrations due to the new Omicron variant of Covid.
Rules mean that Hogmanay at Inverness venues will now be a very different affair. Bars, restaurants and hotels will be required to limit customer numbers as well as ensuring the social distancing of revellers.
So, Hogmanay may on the quiet side again, but fingers crossed some of the great January events planned in Inverness will still go ahead.
Here is Inverness Taxis’ roundup of the best Inverness events in January 2022.
No Such Thing as A Fish

From the people that bring you the amazing and unbelievable facts on television’s ‘QI’ comes the podcast packed with facts and fun. The QI researchers’ award-winning podcast ‘No Such Thing as a Fish’ comes to Eden Court Theatre for a live episode of their podcast that’s sure to be informative and full of laughs.
