The Clan Mackenzie Society is appealing to all our Clan Mackenzie Societies and those who have connections with the Clan Mackenzie here in the UK and overseas to consider attending the 2017 Royal Military Tattoo in Edinburgh. On the 15th August our clan will march up part of the Royal Mile and into the Castle’s arena. We will be accompanied by another clan, probably the MacLeod’s, and as this date is one of the three to be televised by the BBC, we will be watched by many millions all around the World. It is a unique, once in a lifetime, chance to participate in the greatest Military Tattoo in the World.
We need to know as soon as possible how many folk will be coming and, as each clan has been allotted 300 tickets only, there is an urgency to get our numbers finalised preferably before the end of November and at the latest by mid-December.
The Strathpeffer Highland Games are on the 12th August and given sufficient interest we would like to organise an event around them as well and join this to the Tattoo in Edinburgh to make a great experience. Once we have numbers and can organise events we will of course inform you.
Please e-mail our treasurer Jacqueline McKenzie at ‘treasurer AT clanmackenziesociety.co.uk’ and let her know names, number of people in your party and whether you intend to visit Strathpeffer, Edinburgh or both.
