WORLD TARTAN DAY – 6 APRIL 2020

Pipers marching in their Royal Stewart tartan for world tartan day

The tartan is one of the most recognisable patterns around the world and has a strong history for the people of Scotland. Tartan Day was created to celebrate Scottish history and the people of Scottish descent around the world. While it is common on Tartan Days to have parades of pipe bands, Highland dancing and other Scottish-themed events, others simply celebrate it amongst themselves.

Although World Tartan Day was originally created to celebrate Scottish history, there is no reason why people of non-Scottish heritage cannot join the fun. Whether it be a scarf, skirt, or even a kilt, show your love for the fabric that never goes out of fashion this Tartan Day, by incorporating it into your outfit.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the bagpipers and drummers of the Nelson Mandela Artillery will unfortunately not be able to celebrate in public, due to the countries lockdown. We shall, however, be celebrating in our own homes.
