Biggest weekend of Lewis year
The biggest weekend of the summer promises a town buzzing with activity and the sun shining down on events today and tomorrow, with the 22nd Hebridean Celtic Festival just the largest of a number of events hosting visitors. Two days of music, street theatre, fringe activities and performance are promised, with HebCelt bringing bands from Canada, Ireland and all across the UK to the stages of the main arena on the Castle Green. Headliners Imelda May and The Waterboys will be preceded by a parade of talent, including the home-grown variety, and there are community events in the town and further afield, Tarbert seeing island favourites Na h-Oganaich tonight.
