The Saint Andrew’s Society of the Algarve is a small group of Scots and other nationalities whose main aim is to promote all things Scottish. The society will be holding its annual Saint Andrew’s Ball on Saturday, November 26, again at the Penina Hotel.
Participants will be greeted by the skirl of the pipes from 7pm played by piper Malcolm MacGillivray. Following a champagne reception, there will be a “sumptuous buffet” accompanied by wine, followed by coffee and Atholl Brose.
Afterwards, Scottish dancing will be to the accompaniment of ceilidh band from Scotland, The Sounds of Islay.
Tickets cost €45 for Society members and €47.50 for non-members. If you prefer not to drive and spend the night at the hotel after the ball, and/or have a round of golf on the Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course, the hotel is offering special rates for ball participants.
