Doric Carnival

It has been announced that this years Doric Carnival - a wonderful party of overindulgence [not to be confused with the Doric Festival held in October] - will take place at an unspecified place on a random date fairly close to the 4th of June, which by amazing coincidence coincides precisely with International Talk Doric Day. This years carnival promises to be bigger, better, brighter and completely disorganised!

So come along, bring your Tappit Hen and join the party.

Scenes from the 2009 Doric Carnival when revellers spontaneously took to the streets of Peterhead. The celebrations only ended, after six weeks, when Big Bob asked for the bar bill and calculated that it would take three years income from Scottish Oil to pay it off.
