Highland Tattoo benefits WSPCCA

picture3Five hundred local and international performers thrilled audiences at the recent Highland Tattoo, hosted by 94.7 Highveld stereo at Montecasino in Johannesburg in September.

The event saw a wide variety of performances, which ranged from traditional Scottish numbers, to  African acts, with some acts coming from as far afield as Switzerland.

A special charity performance – featuring bagpipers, dancers, drummers, demonstrations by the Metro and South African Police and a host of other exciting acts – benefitted the WSPCCA, raising around R24,000.  Special thanks to Bev Leahy, who organised that the WSPCCA benefitted from the event.
