Berry Celtic Festival
The 12th annual Berry Celtic Festival this year features 'Scotland' and everything Scottish. There is entertainment-a-plenty including spectacular jousting medieval knights.
Jousting is not for the faint hearted, as the heavily armoured noble knights gallop at each other on horseback with lances poised, aiming to unseat their opponent. Hear the thunder of hooves and the clashing of lances. In the background, other knights resplendent in shining armour will be staging battles in hand to hand combat demonstrating skillful swordplay.
The Berry Celtic Festival kicks off with the grand street parade through Berry at 9.30am, with pipe bands marching in all of their distinctive kilts, together with representatives of the all of the Clans, medieval knights, and Scottish Terrier dogs, making their way to Berry Showground.
A day full of entertainment follows with the marching of the massed bands, musical items, Celtic fiddlers, highland dancing, enchanted singing, and of course, the battle of the medieval knights.
