04 May 1990
MORE DETAILS of 'A Day for Scotland', to be held at Stirling's Falleninch Field on 14 July, have been announced. The location, which has been chosen for its convenience for travellers coming from all four corners of the country, will play host to Hue and Cry, Runrig, John Martyn, Dick Gaughan, The Shamen, Fini Tribe, 7:84 Theatre Company, The John Rae Collective, Ceolbeg, Elaine C Smith, Carol Laula, Kith & Kin, Mary Sandeman, The Hamish Moore Band, Celtic Tapestry and the Alien Arts Company. Further additions will be announced in June.
The variety of acts is intended to reflect the diversity of cultural activity in Scotland, and the event has a very prominent political purpose as well. It is, the STUC organisers say, 'a statement from the people of Scotland, saying that we believe we no longer govern our own destiny, and that we should decide our own future. We will demonstrate the depth of feeling which exists in Scotland today tor self-determination, and the strength of our resolve for change.' Tickets, costing £5, are available from 11 May, and can be bought from Just the Ticket and Lost in Music in Glasgow and Virgin and Ripping in Edinburgh, by post from PO Box 180, Head Post Office, Edinburgh and by credit card.
