Scotland’s Winter Festivals give nation chance to shine

Working with the Scottish Government, Stripe launched this year’s programme of Scotland’s Winter Festivals – a global celebration of Scotland’s culture, heritage and creativity.

Running from St Andrew’s Day on November 30 through Hogmanay to Burns Season at the end of January, the season of celebrations brings together lovers of all things Scottish from across the globe.

Highlights for St Andrew’s Day 2011 include a Visit for Free weekend at even more of Scotland’s best-loved visitor attractions, a global focus for this year’s celebrations with worldwide participation in cities such as Beijing, Washington and Brussels, the launch of an international photo competition with Blipfoto to find the best image of our global celebrations and a Scottish Universities’ St Andrew’s Day debate focussing on democracy and young people in 2011.
