Christmas Break

Hey Guys!

We’ve come to the end of another term of trad workshops at the Tolbooth. Congratulations are in order for everyone for all their effort this term, especially at St Andrew’s night ceilidh at the Albert Halls. You all played fantastically and kept everyone dancing! We should have some photos of the ceilidh soon.

The workshops will start up again after the Winter break on Monday, 25th of January. We can’t wait to see you all there!

Wishing you all the best of Seasons Greetings and a Happy Hogmanay,

The Tolbooth Trad team
