Join us for a celebration of Scottish culture and traditions in the heart of Melbourne.
To celebrate the launch of a new community exhibition exploring Scottish migration and culture in Victoria, Scots Wha Hae, the Immigration Museum is hosting a one-day festival of Scottish culture.
Hear the stirring sounds of pipe bands, traditional and contemporary folk music, and the beautiful voices of the Gaelic Choir. Dance the afternoon away alongside highland and country dancers, and be entertained by the Robert Burns Club as they address the haggis. There’ll be traditional Scottish food and special workshops exploring the huge renaissance in the Scottish whisky industry.
So get your kilt on and join us to explore the culture that gave the world tartan and golf, penicillin and Dolly the sheep, Arthur Conan Doyle and the Proclaimers.
