Stromness Shopping Week 2020

The towns legendary gala is piloting a shorter long weekend format this year and remains a fantastic showcase of our community spirit with plenty of fun and games. Regular favourites include the Holms Swim, three legged fancy dress and the Shopping Week 10k race. Music plays a big part during the week too with regular performances from the Stromness Royal British Legion Pipe Band and live bands playing at the pierhead and in the pubs. The week closes with a fabulous fancy dress parade through the town, an open air dance and some jazzy fireworks. We'll of course be serving food and drink all week as well as helping out with various events. Head to the Stromness Shopping Week Facebook page for updates on this years programme.
