Highland Dancing at Royal Easter show
« on: Thursday 04 August 22 03:48 BST (UK) »

Can anyone confirm that on the last night of the Royal Easter Show they had the whole centre ring encircled with highland dancers at the Royal Easter show


Also what years were the Waratah Processions held?  Does anyone remember the route?
Thank you

Waratah Spring Festival Procession - 1956 to 1973.

If you do a search on Trove newspapers for “highland dance” AND “Royal Easter Show”, you will have access to a number of articles.
Milligan - Jardine – Glencross – Dinwoodie - Brown: (Dumfriesshire & Kirkcudbrightshire)
Clark – Faulds – Cuthbertson – Bryson – Wilson: (Ayrshire & Renfrewshire)
Neale – Cater – Kinder - Harrison: (Warwickshire & Queensland)
