Phil compares the Highland Gathering 2018
Harpenden Lions Highland Gathering was a great day out with a ‘Scottish flavour’ offering five pipe and drum bands, highland dancing competitions and displays as well as solo piping. Plus traditional highland games including ‘weight over the bar’, ‘tossing the caber’ and ‘putting the stone’. There were plenty of amusements for children including a funfair, climbing wall, rugby and golf challenges, the popular Kids’ Circle for younger children, opportunities to make sand art pictures and to use a potters’ wheel, face painting and electric Go-karts. And there were lots of food and drink too with beer and cider stalls run by local pubs. Adults and children enjoyed the charity and commercial stalls and the Crafters’ Marquee selling traditional and handmade items. The ‘Scot’s Corner’ sold Scottish fine food, clothing and crafts. Kilt wearing and clan associations were also in the Scot’s Corner. A raffle will took place throughout the day. That’s not all! Sideshows provided further entertainment and in addition there was a large classic cars and motorbikes display. A great day out with charities benefiting from the event.
