ALL things Scottish will be on show at the second annual Scots Night In later this month. 

A mid-year teaser for Scots Day Out in February next year, organiser Chris Earl said the celebratory event would be full of merriment and joy. 

He said entertainment would include bagpipe music making, dancing and a traditional Scottish meal - consisting of lamb for the main course and the traditional Scottish meal Clootie dumplings for dessert. 

"Anyone is allowed to come. It's a community event," he said. 

"The first year it was held it was very popular - we were almost at capacity.

"This year we hope to be bursting at the seams."

The event is at the Brian Boru Hotel on August 30, from 6.30pm.

Mr Earl said preparations were in place for the third annual Scots Day Out, which was gearing up to be bigger and better than previous years.  

"We have already secured some sponsorship but we are looking to develop that further," he said. 

"Scots Day Out is just another initiative the Golden Square Pipe Band does for the community.

"It's very popular and the success it has seen has established it as a major event on our calender.

"It brings together people who love to celebrate and share all things Scottish."

Scots Day Out is on February 14 in Rosalind Park. 

The event attracted thousands of people from Bendigo and surrounding regions last year. 

All aspects of Scottish culture were on show from the pipe bands and highland dancing to traditional dishes such as haggis and black pudding.

Mr Earl said Bendigo had a strong Scottish heritage and it was important to recognise and celebrate the impact Scottish people had on the community. 

He said if anyone wanted a traditional Scottish wedding or to renew their vows, the 2015 program would allow for it. 

Tickets are limited. To book for Scots Night In call Mr Earl 0419 549 743.
