Algarve St Andrew's Ball 2017 - Nov 25th

Algarve St Andrew's Ball 2017 - Nov 25thThe Saint Andrew’s Society of the Algarve is a small group of Scots and other nationalities whose main aim is to promote things Scottish, but also to enjoy ourselves.

We will be having our annual Saint Andrews Ball on Saturday 25 November. Once again it will be at the marvellous Penina Hotel, which always looks after us so very well. Participants will be greeted by the skirl of the pipes from 7 pm played by our wonderful piper Malcolm MacGillivray. Following a champagne reception there will be a bounteous and sumptuous buffet accompanied by wine, followed by coffee and Atholl Brose.

Afterwards, Scottish dancing will be to the accompaniment our excellent ceilidh band from Scotland, “The Sound of Islay”. Each dance will be talked and walked through beforehand so no need for beginners to hang back!

So a great opportunity to get out your glad rags. Tickets will cost €45 for Society members and €47,50 for non-members.

If you prefer not to drive and spend the night at the hotel after the Ball, and/or have a round of golf on the Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course, the Hotel is offering special rates for Ball participants.

If you would like to buy tickets and/or inquire about the Hotel’s special offer – or indeed simply to find out more about the Saint Andrew’s Society and its other events - give Kathy Prentice a ring on 919 635 246.

If you would like to sharpen your dancing skills beforehand or even have a go for the first time why not give it a try at the Nobel School at Porches on Monday evenings from 7.30-9.30 pm. For details contact Mardie Cunningham either on 282 356 029 or e-mail mardie@sapo.pt.
