After a long break between events the Bonnie Wingham Scottish Festival returned in June to Wingham, New South Wales. Thousands of people came out to enjoy a full day of entertainment and activities for the whole family. This year’s honoured Clan was Clan MacPherson and the Chieftain, was Col. John Macpherson. This years event was a great success with crowds coming from across NSW to enjoy this free community event and again connect with the Scottish community at a day of pipe bands, musicians, Clans, re-enactors, stalls and more.
Wingham is a small township 20min drive west of Taree on the beautiful mid-north coast of New South Wales. It is situated on the banks of the Manning River and represents the furthest navigational point of the river. Wingham has had a long history of Scottish influence, beginning with the settling of Scottish immigrants in the early 1800s.
The next Bonnie Wingham Scottish Festival will take place in June, 2022. For details see: www.bwsf.zyrosite.com
