There’s lots going on like big strong men tossing cabers and throwing hammers. Light footed highland dancer’s dancing. There’s pipers piping, runners running and cyclist’s cycling. There’s also a crowd of men trying to pull a rope away from another crowd of men, they’ll likely be sitting a while but one team always wins!!
There’s ice-cream and a bouncy castle, and races to help keep the kids happy. We’ve also got some lovely local food and drink stalls, and some home grown crafts folk bringing along their wares for you to browse through.

As with most events, these timings are just a guide to give you an idea of what’s on when. Some events may be brought forward or put back due to the number of competitors and the ground conditions on the day. The best plan is to listen to the commentator who will keep you right with what’s what!
