Loughries Ulster Scots Festival

On Friday 15th October 2010, the third and final part of Loughries Mini Ulster Scots Festival took place as planned at the Londonderry Room, Town Hall, Newtownards.

The Musical Evening, which brought the mini festival to a close, attracted a great crowd who packed into the room to enjoy the following performers: - The Thompson Brothers, Newtownards Orange Male Voice Choir, Lord Londonderry's Own CLB Band, poet and writer Wilbert Magill, with the evening compared by Mr. David Anderson MVO MBE.

At the conclusion of the evening, light refreshments were served - with a retiring offering, raising £250.00, for the Asha Koran Special School in India.

Sorry only one photograph taken at the event, our resident photographer, Bobby Magreechan was on holiday's - however it will give you a flavour of the venue and the audience at the event.

Loughries would like to thank Mr. Geoff Porter from Ards Borough Council Community Development Office, for providing the financial assistance - enabling Loughries to deliver a very
successful Ulster Scots Festival.
