The Best Bash Of The Year, St Andrews Ball - Nov 30th 2019

St Andrews Ball - Nov 30th 2019The 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. This year our annual ball will actually take place on Saint Andrew’s Day, 30 November. Come and join us!

Once again it will be at the marvellous 5-star Penina Hotel, which always looks after us so very well. The event will begin at 7pm sharp where participants will be greeted by the skirl of the pipes played by our wonderful piper Malcolm MacGillivray. Following a champagne reception there will be a bounteous and sumptuous Grand Buffet accompanied by wine, followed by coffee and Atholl Brose.

Afterwards Scottish dancing will be to the accompaniment of our ever-present and 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 and have a great time. Tickets will cost €45 for Society members and €47.50 for non-members. If you prefer not to drive and instead spend the night at the hotel after the Ball, and/or have a round of golf on the Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course, discounted special rates are available for Ball participants. To take advantage of the room and golf special rates you should book directly with the hotel on 282 420 200 mentioning that you are part of the Saint Andrew’s Group.

For Ball tickets, or simply to find out more about the Saint Andrew’s Society and its events, give Kathy Prentice a ring on 919 635 246.

But it is worth putting in your diaries now that our 2020 Burns Supper will be on Saturday 25 January (the Bard’s birthday) in the Ponte Romana Restaurant in Silves.

Doug McAdam, Chieftain
