Royal date for Wick's performers

WICK is planning a variety jubilee concert with artistes who will be given an opportunity to perform before the queen....the gala queen that is!
The concert is just one of the attractions in a packed programme guaranteed to make the town’s annual festival one of the best yet.The Far North organisers have pencilled the concert in for Friday, August 3, at Wick Assembly Rooms, which will feature a cross section of local artistes of all ages.
Pride of place, however, will go the crowning of the gala queen – yet to be chosen – on the opening day of the festival, on July 28, at a new venue, the Riverside car park. She will then lead a procession of decorated floats and fancy dress collectors, through the town for the presentation of prizes at the Assembly Rooms.
Other attractions during the week are, "It’s a Knockout" competition, sports events and talks, a children’s fancy dress contest, a dog show, a baby show, and a gymkhana, culminating in the traditional barbeque, music and fireworks grand finale at the riverside. Other events have yet to be confirmed.
