Busy schedule for Tumbling Lassie before she goes to the Ball

09 Sep


FINAL preparations are being made for next month’s Tumbling Lassie Ball, but she has three other engagements before the big night.

The Ball, the biggest anti-trafficking and anti-modern slavery fundraising event in Scotland, is on Saturday, 5 October, at The Stables, Prestonfield House, Edinburgh.

In the meantime, the Tumbling Lassie will be visiting Dundee and Perthshire for events this month.

The first, on Thursday, 12 September, is at 7pm in Lecture Theatre 4 in the University of Dundee’s Dalhousie Building. The Chair of the Tumbling Lassie Committee, Alan McLean, QC, will give the opening lecture of the new session of Lifelong Learning Dundee, and will tell the story of the Tumbling Lassie and slavery in Scotland – past and present. Entry is free but donations to the Tumbling Lassie appeal will be welcomed.

The Tumbling Lassie operetta, by Alexander McCall Smith and Tom Cunningham, will be performed in a double bill with their other work, Fergus of Galloway, at The Stables, Abercairny, Perthshire, at 7:30pm on Saturday, 28 September. Tickets are £15.

And because of demand, there will be a matinee performance next day, Sunday, 29 September, at 3pm. Proceeds are to go to the Tumbling Lassie appeal and the Friends of Innnerpeffray Library.
