Scott's Selkirk 2016
Scott’s Selkirk - Saturday 8th October 2016
With only a week to go, planning for Scott’s Selkirk is almost complete. We are looking forward to being on earlier this year, at the same time as Selkirk Sessions.
Rather than the usual Christmas decorations around the town there will again be an autumn/harvest theme
The main performance areas are again the High Street, and Market Place stages.
Meg Dods’ kitchen is at The Hermitage (many thanks to Allied Surveyors), with the seating area on the High Street in front of the main stage.
Performances will run throughout the day on both stages –
Selkirk’s Silver Band, Pipe Band and Flute Band will be joined by Gael Force, Bogie Close Stompers, Riddell Fiddles, The Podlies, Carly Blain and Graeme Armstrong, and the High Line Fiddlers.
At 1pm, 2pm and 3pm there will be open mic sessions for the many musicians who will be here for Selkirk Sessions.
Also on the High Street you will find traditional children’s games, Birds of Prey, and we are again delighted to welcome miniature ponies and miniature donkeys from the Borders Donkey Sanctuary, and Boots the Performing Goat from Les Amis d’Onno.
There will be craft stalls in the Market Place, and at the Selkirk Rotary Club Charities Bazaar in the Victoria Halls.
Elsewhere we have
Childrens activities in Halliwell’s House Museum from 11- 12.30 and from 1.30 to 3.30
Selkirk Country Dancers in O’Malleys at 2pm
Coffees and teas are on sale at the Parish Church and at St Joseph’s Catholic Church halls –
The court cases in Walter Scott’s Courtroom are
at 11.30 and 2.15
and The Strange Encounter at 12.30 and 3.15
The day will finish with our concert in The County Hotel
- tickets £10 from the Scott’s Selkirk shop
- featuring The Podlies, Carly Blain & Graeme Armstrong, Gael Force, and Riddell Fiddles, compered by John Nichol
Costumes are available for hire from the Scott’s Selkirk shop at 18 Market Place, from 10am to 5pm Tuesday to Saturday from 27th September.
Please all come along and enjoy the day
