White Heather Club weaves in new tartan partnership for popular ceilidh nights
We all love a ceilidh, and it's been brilliant to see our White Heather Club grow and grow since we launched our monthly Highland dancing events last year. So we're especially excited to be teaming up with the esteemed kilt-maker ScotlandShop to help make our ceilidhs even bigger and better!
If you were at our most recent ceilidh you'll have seen our staff decked out in a Bonnie & Wild tartan, big banners, prizes and a massive ScotlandShop throne for dancers to get snapped in (or perhaps take a well-earned rest!)
Dancers on the night (and every White Heather Club from now on) were handed prize-winning rosettes by the fabulous Charlie Kirkpatrick, who heads up our ceilidh band and calls out all the dancers. As well awards for many of the dances, we also gave our a couple of star prizes for the night's bonniest dancers, including Bonnie & Wild and ScotlandShop gift vouchers, a dram and other goodies.
Bonnie & Wild’s White Heather Club has proved to be a hugely popular night in Edinburgh’s events calendar since we launched it last August. Taking place on the last Thursday of every month, the dances have attracted thousands of city residents and visitors who've enjoyed Bonnie & Wild's warm welcome alongside dances such as the Orcadian Strip the Willow, Dashing White Sergeant and the Gay Gordons.
But if that wasn't enough, the team at ScotlandShop brought along their mighty throne, giving dancers (and everyone else) the braw chance to get their photo done in this extraordinary chair! (See pics below!)
