I think that I will write very little this month. There’s so much news and information that my head is spinning. Importantly, don’t forget that you only have until 31st August to apply for inclusion in the 2019 Australian Celtic Festival.
What a great night the new-look Annual Tartan Day Dinner was. To give you the flavour of the evening, here’s a photo of Lara and James Gresham in front of one of three of the beautiful open fires. Lara is the 2018 Australian Celtic Festival Committee Chairman. The dinner was held at the Highland Restaurant which is located at the New England Motor Lodge. This venue will also feature during our Outlandish 2018 Outlander Fan Gathering weekend, re-badged for the evening as Lallybroch.
No sooner is the Australian Celtic Festival weekend over than we start again. I am in awe of all the Volunteers who work incredibly hard to provide entertainment, fun and interest to our vibrant region.
There are two entirely new Festivals to tell you about this month with the Vintage Rose Festival in Glen Innes and the Peter Allen Festival in Tenterfield both holding inaugural events. Of course, there are updates for all your favourites as well. AND there is an exciting announcement from Outlandish 2018 Outlander Fan Gathering.
The Australian Celtic Festival is over for another year. I always feel a little bit of a let-down when it’s over. The four days goes by in a blur, but I really enjoyed myself again this year.
It’s good to look over all the photos to choose which ones to include in this Newsletter.
