While the colourful and unique competitions are the centre of the event, surrounding these is a huge festival which is an attraction in itself. “This year we have introduced the Duncan Cotterill Stage which will see some great acts like the Southern Celtic Fiddle Orchestra and Ma Bell and The Celtic Connection entertain. The SCA Medieval actors will be back with their mock battles and craft demonstrations,” explained Stalls Convenor, Dee Innes. The Taste of Scotland is a wonderful experience with food, wine, MALVERN LIONS CLUB Proud to support Hororata Highland Games Scottish wares, tartan and, of course, Haggis to enjoy. In Clan Lane the Canterbury Scottish Heritage Council hosts 18 Clans who enjoy talking to people about their lineage and providing Scottish entertainment with Willie MacArthur performing throughout the day. “This year the Hororata Whisky has three new labels which will be launched at the Games. Last year’s whisky sold out so make sure you find the Whisky Galore stand early. The Hororata Community Trust is also introducing new Hororata Tartan Cushions which will be available at a special introductory price in Taste of Scotland. The legendary Hororata Pie will be back as well as an amazing selection of local and international food stalls ranging from traditional festival food to different healthy options, making choosing what to have the hardest part about lunch.” With over 100 stalls at the event there is a huge array of sites offering everything from wooden furniture, clothing, toys, jewellery, produce, gifts, homeware and much more.
