LLAMA AGILITY RACING
A FIRST IN THE UK!
The display is performed to music with an informative amusing commentary.
Between displays the Llamas will be on show in a static stand where members of the public can get up close to these friendly majestic animals.
EXCITING, FUN WITH CROWD INTERACTION.
Watch two teams of super Llamas compete against each other in a fast action relay race.
Cheer as members of the audience, under the supervision of trained handlers, lead their Llama through a testing obstacle course, jumping the hurdles, zig-zagging through weaving poles, ducking under limbo bars and negotiating hanging vines. A truly unique, exciting, action-packed display.
CHESTERFIELD MUSKETEERS SHOWBAND
Also appearing at the 2013 Gathering is the award winning Chesterfield Musketeers Showband who will be performing two marching band displays. This is a departure from our tradition of having a military band but the entertainment value is excellent and the Committee is delighted to have secured their services.
LIVE FOLK MUSIC STAGE
Our live Folk musicians will perform throughout the afternoon in their own Folk Music Marquee. The admission price is already included in the cost of your ticket.
Our special guest performer is former Chieftain of the games, the singer and TV presenter, Isla St. Clair.
Isla, who has many TV shows and album releases behind her, will perform from her extensive repertoire of Scots Folk songs, accompanied by her guitar.
The Ashbourne Highland Games committee is delighted that this friend of the games is able to join us and bring Folk song to the games for the first time.
For more information on Isla’s current musical projects, please see: http://www.islastclair.com/
Isla will be supported by the Scots-led Derbyshire Folk-Rock band, JigeryFolkery, who will add a selection of lively jigs and reels to the afternoon.
