*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: St Ursen, FR
Event Type: Family
Location: St Ursen, Fribourg
Price: 15.00 per day

After last weekends 1st HG near Zurich, I thought I'd let you know about the 2nd one at the end of the month in St Ursen just outside Fribourg and I'll be attending again with my cheese stall. This Highland Games is the most authentic and the highlight for me is the massed pipers (about 100!) playing together on the Sunday afternoon.

Entree is 15.00 Chufs (under 16's free) and the party goes on with live music until the early hours on the Friday and Saturday nights.

There are bars in the grounds and as well as selling cheese and other nice British foods I'll be serving Hot Toddies and Highland Hot Shots as well as plates of cheese and crackers and Scones and Clotted cream.

If you'd like to meet up with other EFers mention below what time you might be around. I would suggest Saturday late afternoon/early evening and Sunday afternoon would the best times for a drink at my stall.

There is a shuttle bus from Fribourg BH and the timetable, as well as a map, are on this link.

See you there!
