Some of the best traditional Scottish musicians will take to the stage to close the Inverness Highland Games.

The Big Top Ceilidh will take place at Bught Park on Saturday, July 13 and tickets can be now purchased (at £15 per person) from the event’s website.

Provost Glynis Campbell Sinclair said: “Join us for a traditional Highland ceilidh. Your visit to the Inverness Games and to the Highlands would not be complete if you didn’t take part in a ceilidh.

“Ceilidhs are gatherings for people to enjoy traditional music, have a dance and enjoy themselves. You will learn some of the great ceilidh dances – the Gay Gordons, Strip the Willow and the Eightsome reel. This will be one of the best nights you can have in Scotland.”

This year’s event has been supported by EventScotland’s National Events Programme.

“We give a huge thank you to EventScotland for their funding and support,” Cllr Campbell Sinclair continued.

Paul Bush OBE, director of events, VisitScotland said: “We are proud to be supporting Inverness Highland Games, as part of EventScotland’s National Events Programme. This event is the biggest Highland Games staged in the north of Scotland and the Big Top Ceilidh is a fantastic addition to their packed programme.

“The games attracts thousands of visitors to the Highland Capital and is a much-loved event for locals. Authentic Scottish experiences like these are a key ingredient of our country’s vibrant events portfolio.”
