Kirkhill Gala Week 2012 is fast approaching and promises to be better than ever. The Gala Committee are really excited about the programme for this year.
Tickets for many of the events are already selling well so don’t leave it too late to secure your tickets. We expect to sell out for the Food Demonstration Night, The Pamper Night and Gala Dance. Please do not leave it too late as these will be fantastic nights.
At last week’s Gala Disco the Gala Queen, Princesses and Princes were chosen. This year’s royals are Gala Queen Louisa Fairgrieve, Princesses Anna Knox and Catriona Johannsen and Princes Lachlan O’Flynn and Cameron McDonald. More than 100 children attended the Discos and had a great time.
There’s lots of old favourites again this year such as the ever popular Bingo Night and Pets Parade but also some new features including a Pamper Evening for girls and ladies and food demonstration night. We’ve introduced a new Scarecrow competition too on a Royal Jubilee theme. We can’t wait to see scarecrows popping up all over. If you need some inspiration visit the fantastic Tattie Bogle website from Skye. And of the course the week will be finish off with a fantastic Gala Day with a huge range of activities and stalls including a gun dog and falconry display and the Gala Dance featuring Torridon.
Food demonstration night
The food demo night is one for all those budding ‘Jamie Oliver’s’ and ‘Gordon Ramsay’s’ as well as the budding ‘Nigella’s’ and ‘Delia’s’. It will be a really great night with the chance to sample the delicacies made and have a couple of glasses of wine and a chance to catch up with people that you just don’t see enough of. You’ll get loads of hints and tips from Louisa from the Kitchen Range in Dingwall and a chance to purchase some of the many items she stocks in her shop.
The Pamper Evening is for ladies of all ages, from pampered princesses to queen mothers. There’s a full night of pamper opportunities and your ticket includes a glass of wine and homemade shortbread. There will be a number of short demonstrations from cupcake decorating, cocktail making, and ethnic jewellery and luxury facials. Ladies will have the chance to book mini treatments at a cost of £3 a time (a real bargain) which will include glitter tattoos, reflexology, head massage, tidy and polish nail treatments, hand massages, eyebrow shaping, hair straightening and curling, neck and shoulder massage, gel nail overlays. They’ll also be stalls including Jewellery, Jamie at Home, Temple Spa, Lush, Luxury Candles, Handbags and Scarves, Cake Mamma to name a few.
Sorry fellas you are not allowed, but there is Junior Shinty on which will attract a good crowd and is very entertaining. Our community centre and grounds will literally be bursting on this night so if you can please don’t take your car if you don’t need to.
