Transport yourself back to the early 1900s and experience life on a working cargo ship! For one weekend only The Tall Ship will be ‘brought to life’ so that you can experience the ship as though you are part of the crew on a voyage. Stationed around the ship, costumed crew will be enabling visitors to see first-hand the types of duties that would have been done. Join the cook in the galley to make ‘ship’s biscuits’, try your hand at knot tying with the sailmaker, practice your wood carving skills with the carpenter and the captain’s wife will even be on hand so you can try knitting and embroidery. On board there will also be, an animal petting zoo, face painting, temporary tattoos and to top it all off, live music!
FREE event except: Face painting £2, Tattoos £1 and Petting zoo £2 (per child)
Ceilidh the night away below the decks of The Tall Ship. With fantastic live music from the previous Scottish Traditional Music Awards’ 'Ceilidh Dance band of the year Deoch ‘n’ Dorus, your ears are in for a true treat!
All dances will be talked through, making this event perfect for absolute beginners and seasoned pros alike. You can even just sit back with a drink from the licensed bar and enjoy the music in unique, atmospheric surroundings.
Don’t miss this superb opportunity to Strip the Willow on the water, and dance The Gay Gordons on the glorious S.V. Glenlee, better known as The Tall Ship!
Tickets include entrance to the ceilidh and your fill of traditional Scottish stovies to keep your energy up for dancing the night away!
