Another Wonderful Scottish Evening !

Our Sixth Successful Scottish Evening!

Many ‘hens’ and ‘Jimmys’ had another wonderful evening at the Tithe Barn listening to the excellent live band, taking part in a variety of well-known Scottish dances, consuming homemade refreshments (including  a ‘Chieftain’ size Haggis) and laughing at Brian’s new and very funny jokes – all with a Scottish flavour.  This was our sixth year of hosting this event and it was lovely to see so many familiar faces – we seem to have developed a following!

Many positive comments were received by guests as they left such as; ‘ It was immensely enjoyable, thank you.’, ‘A wonderful evening!’, ‘It was great to have the song chorus words to join in with’, ‘Lovely food and we even ate the Haggis!’ and ‘What tremendous fun.’  The most rewarding of all was … “See you again next year.”

Presenting the Haggis and the piper enjoys a 'wee dram' after the address.

We demonstrated the dances first but nearly everyone joined in and had a go!
