Last week we ran a competition to give away tickets to both the Family Hoog and the Main Hoog event.
Our winner was Julia Forsyth and she has kindly sent us a report of her experience there, with a fabulous review from her son Logan. Click the link below to listen to what he had to say on his first Hoog experience!
We took our 2 oldest children (aged 7 and 9) to the family Hoog at the Assembly Rooms. It was a fantastic night and we all really enjoyed ourselves. The venue itself was spectacular, beautifully lit to create a very festive atmosphere. The band had a great energy and really “rocked up” the traditional ceilidh sounds. We danced Strip the Willow. The Gay Gordons, The Dashing White Sergeant, we even attempted an Eightsome Reel. All the dances were called, and walked through first and there were enough people there who knew what they were doing to ensure the dances didn’t fall apart. The Hoog is recommended for children older than 9. Our 7 year old coped very well though, and had a great time. There were a few even younger children there, the venue was very spacious so I think had my nearly 4 year old been able to stay awake that late I would have felt comfortable taking her along too. Lots of swirling tartan, friendly faces, tasty stovies and an Auld Lang Syne to finish the evening off. Kids home and tucked into bed by 10.30. Perfect!
Looks like you had a fabulous time Julia !
