Selkirk Scotland



Sir Walter Scott's Selkirk 2002
Saturday 30th November & Sunday 1st December 2002

Selkirk staged an extremely successful third Period Weekend which was held in December 2002.

It was themed on Sir Walter Scott (circa.early 1800's) and a large number of townspeople dressed up in period costume. All the shopkeepers and their staff did the same.

Actors played the parts of Sir Walter Scott, James Hogg , Dr Lawson and Mungo Park. These men were all notable people of the town in the 1800's. There were plays, dancing, music and many market stalls.

The weekend proved to be an outstanding success with very favourable weather on both days.
