A "Splash of Tartan" - Saturday 5th August 2017 @ 7.30pm.
Following on from the recent article in the Winter 2017 Herald regarding next year's Edinburgh
Military Tattoo and the involvement of the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs, Iain Gunn of Gunn
has agreed to be present as one of the principal guests and to take the salute from the guard of
honour at the above-mentioned performance. The actual format of the Clan's participation is still
to be finalised but it will probably involve a march into the central arena with some narrative about
the Clan's history and we will of course, update you about this when we know the final programme.
The organisers are trying to encourage as many of the clan (dressed in tartan where possible) to attend
on their Chief's night and in this respect, we have been offered guaranteed tickets for the above-mentioned
performance, which will be held for us until 1st March 2017 with ticket prices ranging from £35 to £125.
If you are interested in attending, please contact: Rich Gunn at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are hoping to get at least 50 members of the Clan to support our Chief at the performance on Saturday
5th August 2017 (7.30pm), but have been allocated a maximum of 150 tickets (which are only being held to
the 1st March 2017) so If you would like to attend, please try and book as soon as possible. We are also
looking to organise a Mini-gathering around this event (details to be announced at a later date) so the
trip to Edinburgh will hopefully be doubly worthwhile.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.
