It was an early start for the team on Sunday where most of the events events were based at the spectacular Collegiate Church.
The St Duthac Pageant, usually performed by the P3 pupils at Knockbreck and Craighill Primary Schools, was adapted during lockdown by Peter Whitley into a skit (a short comedy sketch or piece of humorous writing) and performed by TADA (Tain Amateur Dramatic Association. Introduced by Councillor Derek Louden it was a perfect recipe of light humour and a brief education into the life of St Duthas and the history of the Collegiate Church.
After some lovely home baking and teas the church was ready for Dr Tom Turpie who explored the legends surrounding the identity of St Duthac, his close relationship with the Stewart dynasty and the pilgrim experience at Tain in the later Middle Ages.
Next on our programme we headed to 'The Art Room'. A fantastic shop and venue for art lovers and anyone looking for a gift with a difference for a loved one.
This was the perfect setting for our youngest artist in the programme, Laura Kirk who talked about her first book 'Folklore In the Seaboard Villages'.
Our sublime Sunday was rounded of in the perfect setting of the Collegiate Church with a concert performed by Music Fyne, introduced by Chris Williams.
Musick Fyne are a choral group and performed pieces from the 15th and 16th centuries. As Mark Janes said "Their talent, combined with the acoustics of the collegiate church, made for an immersive musical experience that I can only equate to slipping into a warm bath! A real treat, both visually and musically."
