Gala Day is a little bit more special this year as we’re celebrating the opening of our newly refurbished and extended community centre. Everyone’s invited to the official opening at 2pm by local musician Duncan Chisholm.
Gala Day will be compered by Davie Robertson the Gala Queen, Laurie Mcphie, will be crowned by singer and multi-instrumentalist, Julie Fowlis, most recently known for her work on Disney Pixar’s Brave. Laurie’s princesses and princes are Morgan Mackintosh, Sophie Forbes, Kenny Ross and Archie Laird.
Julie, her partner Eamonn Doorley and Duncan will also collaborate to lead off the afternoon’s music and our own wee music festival. There won’t be a seat on a bale to be had, so get there early.
And in the main arena, there will be circus skills and stilt walkers from Fly Agaric, terrier racing and a display from the Territorial Army as well as dancing, shinty, fancy dress footie and tug o’ war. More details in the full Gala Day programme.
Finally, to finish off a fantastic week the Gala Dance features the ever popular band Sharp Exit. Tickets are going fast so get yours now.
Don’t forget all money raised during Gala Week supports our newly refurbished community centre and keeps running costs down.
