Page last updated 2/06/2011 Show me some New Zealand Tartans and others too ...

Celebrations of tartan started with Tartan Day 2000 in Cambridge, 2001 in Cambridge & Hamilton, 2002
Over the past few years
in Hamilton, tartan day is held celebrating tartan and Scottish culture. Now it is generally organised by David McLachlan of the Clan MacLachlan Society supported by the Cambridge & Districts Pipe Band and Mitchell Kilt Hire and other folk who contribute their skills. In 2010 the event incorporated a play based on the battle at Culloden and the aftermath. For 2011 the play will be based on the massacre at Glencoe. Items are provided by the Cambridge and Districts Pipe Band and any other folk who wish to contribute an item. Music, Burns story etc.
