A bumper crowd is expected to attend the Inverness Common Good Fund sponsored Red Hot Highland Fling Hogmanay Show which will be staged in Northern Meeting Park Arena, Inverness on Saturday 31st December.
The event will be hosted by Comedian Craig Hill and will feature The Elephant Sessions, Scooty and the Skyhooks, and Scottish Trad Music Live Band of the Year Skerryvore.
Provost Helen Carmichael said:
“Since our Winter Festival was launched at the end of 2008; it has made a significant contribution towards making Inverness a more enjoyable place to live and provided a significant boost to the local economy by attracting visitors from far and wide to our city. It is wonderful to see just how much enjoyment each of our events generates and to see how much they are appreciated by everybody.”
The gates will open at 8pm and the show will run from 20:30 – 00:30 with a short pause at midnight for fireworks and the singing of Auld Lang Syne.
