Bergen Scottish Society


Saturday 11th September - Greighallen

The Society had a stand and gave displays of Scottish Country dancing at Bergen's (and Norway's) first fair dedicated to amateur cultural organisations, organised by Amatørkulturrådet.

Vistors to our stand were treated to oat cakes, mature cheddar, shortbread and Irn Bru along with an impromptu dancing demonstration, used to warm up for the performance on the main stage at Greighallen.

One of these warm up sessions was caught on camera by NRK and included in a feature on Amatørkulturdagen on the NRK 1 programme Norge Rundt on Friday 24th September.

Bergen Pipes & Drums were on hand as well and played sets on both the outside stage and on the main stage.
