Highland Homecoming, 19th – 31st October
Highland Homecoming will welcome locals and visitors to enjoy the best of the Highland’s rich heritage and culture with a programme of over 100 events including spectacular street theatre, music, storytelling and of course world famous ceilidhs. Some of the programme highlights include a performance by the sublimely talented award-winning Gaelic singer songwriter Julie Fowlis, a Polish performance of MacBeth, Homecoming Showcase’s at the Ironworks in Inverness with a number of gigs throughout Highland Homecoming including the Homecoming showcase featuring Shutter, Call To Mind, Bronto Skylift, Iain McLaughin & The Outsiders and many more.
All of this is happening around Scotland’s Global Impact Conference 22-24 October which will explore the theory that our small nation did indeed change the world.
At a time when the Highland population is rising for the first time in centuries, this gathering brings together prominent academics, historians, and other experts from Scotland and around the world to throw new light on the movement to and from our country. Distinguished speakers at the event include Professor Ted Cowan, Professor Jim Hunter, Professor John Mackenzie, and Dr. Tony Pollard
