St Fillans Festive Weekend

St Fillans Festive Weekend
St Fillans Festive WeekendAug 16th - Aug 18th | Playing Fields St Fillans

2019 Festive Weekend. The dates are 16, 17 and 18th of August. All events will take place in the Marquees at the Playing Field. Here is summary of what you can expect over a very full weekend. Scroll down to see the poster.

 

Every event will have a full drinks service via a pay bar, but this year with a difference, in that we have invited the Top Out Brewery from Edinburgh to offer their Craft Beers on tap, in addition to our normal range of wines and spirits.

 

Friday Night August 16th 7:30pm – a pub night with bar snacks featuring Homelanders, (Paul Philps and John Morgan), whose music and crack will keep you entertained.

 

 

Saturday 17th August – the afternoon will as usual begin about 12.30pm and be aimed toward families with activities specifically designed for our younger Villagers.

There will be a theme to tie in with our new Play Park. It will be Scottish Beasties (real or mythical) of any size and shape and from any era. If you can think of a good costume, you could win a prize.

There will be "wee beasty" games for younger oneshese which will include 2 new games being introduced to the Village, namely "Splat The Haggis" and "Wheech the Keech"       

While it is a bit early to ask for a listing in the Guinness Book of Records, we think that "Wheech the Keech" might be a St Fillans invention and the first of a series of annual World Championships. Take part and perhaps become a World Champion!!!!

Food offered will be traditional picnic fayre provided by Nutritious & Delicious, so if the weather is good, look out your camping chairs or travel rugs. Nothing nicer than sitting in the sun sipping a glass of chilled something while your young ones are being occupied by others. Obviously, if the weather is less than clement, we will retire to tables and chairs in the Marquees. 

Saturday Night kicks off at 7.30pm with the arrival of Rocket Jam, a five piece band from Glasgow. We think they will get the place jumping.

There will be a theme – “Cocktails”. Remember the 1988 Movie” Cocktail” starring Tom Cruise. Much of it was based round a cocktail bar in Jamaica, so if you want to attend wearing a stylishly loud beach-shirt/blouse, just go for it. Real Cocktails will be on sale while they last. The food to be provided is being designed by the Golf Club Caterers to reflect the theme.

Sunday 18th August  will see the return of our much loved Tullybannocher Buffet. Doors will open at 12.30pm and music will be provided by a duo, again from Glasgow, called “Ginny and the Tonic”. They will provide a relaxed background in keeping with a slightly more structured event, but of course there will still be plenty of opportunity for dancing.

There will be the usual Raffle and Auction, subject to suitable prizes being sourced. If you would like to offer something for either the Raffle or Auction, please get in touch with any member of the Festive Committee. They are Ruth Graham, Ulrika Hollas, Pete Rickhaus, Gordon McDowall, Nick Jones, Norman Butter and Bruce Montgomery.

A Cash bar available for all events with prosecco, white, red and rose wines. For the first time, beers will be on tap, served by Top Out Brewery from Edinburgh. Spirits and cocktails also available - but sometimes specific to events. (All beers, wines and cocktails have been quality tested by Festive Committee - a hard job, but someone had to do it).

Tickets will  be on sale via these same folk from 15 July, so don't delay. For a couple of years there has been a waiting list and last year we were not able to accommodate everyone who wanted to attend. Please do not delay buying your tickets.
