A free street party from 5.30pm to 9pm sees hundreds pack into historic Buckingham Street to enjoy great entertainment, fantastic food and drink stalls, and face painting, games and more in a kids’ entertainment area. New this year is a celebrity signing area featuring superstars of sport and entertainment, and music from Celtic Sounds – an amazing 12-piece band comprising pipers, drummers, singers, keyboard and a drum kit. Their brand of Celtic Rock belts out a wide variety of music ranging from rock to folk, contemporary and traditional Scottish music.
Organiser Sue Patterson says this year’s Scottish theme relates to Scotland being the home of golf. “It also gave us an opportunity to provide really great family entertainment to suit all ages but with a contemporary edge,” she says.
