Local singers, musicians, dancers, performing arts, artists, entertainers and youth groups with an interest in street performances are being called upon to demonstrate their talents as part of the Touch of Tartan Weekend in Perth this August.

The Touch of Tartan weekend will be hosted in the heart of Perth City on Saturday 8 and 9 August, welcoming visitors with a wide range of family entertainment, traditional Highland games and tasty food.

The weekend is based around the fourth annual Perth 5k Kilt run on Saturday 8 August, and the traditional Perth Highland Games on Sunday 9 August. 

Performances on the main stage are already planned from Eric Faulkner's Bay City Rollers, Perthshire favourite Dougie MacLean and local folk duo The Mad Ferret Band, but organisers are now looking for other groups to get involved in entertainment on the Saturday.

If your group can help bring a touch of tartan to the proceedings contact Michael Boyle, Events Officer MJBoyle@pkc.gov.uk or call 01738 477952.
