The 2015 Smallholders Gathering at Clachan Village Hall in Kintyre is on Saturday 5th September from 13.00 to 16.00; and 19.00 to midnight – with just about everything you could possibly hope would be there.
Among its sponsors are Campbeltown malts, ales from the Isle of malts – Islay and the Kintyre Way long distance walking trail. These are individually delightful – but it is not advisable to take them together.
At the event expect to be overwhelmed in the afternoon session by produce of all kinds, information on foods, plants, renewables, musical instrument repairs, green word work, face painting, haircuts – and refreshments.
With three hours to recover between 16.00 and 19.00 before the evening gig to midnight, look forward to musicians, a band, dancing, a barbecue and a bar. – with gurning and a raffle for variety.
Tickets – £5 and £2 for accompanied children – come with a free burger and glass of ‘ancient wine’ [unexplained].
- Anyone wishing to book a stall or perform and everyone waiting to enter the beer and wine competition, should phone 01880 740 650.
- All information is available from the Little Green Clachan website here.
