Orkney CommunitiesSanday Soulka | text version | sitemap | log in

The sixth Sanday Soulka: 'Selkies, Sand, Scadman's Skull' - and the Sanday Sports Spectacular - start today.

You don't have to own a Soulka T-shirt, but you will never forget the Soulka Viking. Look now at the September page, check the timetable - and book the ferry. We hope to see you soon...

Were you on Sanday for the fifth Soulka? Even if you weren't, you might like to have a look at some of the things that were happening; click on the August page to see.

The sixth Sanday Soulka, 'Selkies, Sand and the Scadman's Skull', starts next weekend - come and join us.

We shall be celebrating the extraordinary natural history of the island, and are delighted that a number of local and 'away' experts have accepted our invitation to come to Sanday to give presentations and where possible take us on outings. Arrangements for Sunday have been specially designed, in co-operation with Orkney Science Festival, so that day-visitors from Kirkwall will have a chance to join us for what promises to be a fascinating day; an opportunity to hear and see short, illustrated, presentations from several naturalists - then a break for lunch before returning in the afternoon to hear the John D. Mackay Memorial lecture from Professor R.J. (Sam) Berry. Sam Berry is the author of 'The Natural History of Orkney' and 'Orkney Nature', both of which give an overview of the biodiversity of the islands. He has also written a book called 'Islands', and the theme of the presentation will be 'Island Nature'.

September marks the end of the season for the Sports Club, so we shall be celebrating with the annual friendly 'Old v. Young' Football and Netball matches on Saturday evening. Whoever wins, we know that all the players, the spectators, and many more besides will return to the Community Hall in the evening for the Sports Club Dance, featuring the first visit to Sanday of Alpha Dixie, a new line-up consisting of some of Orkney's best-known and most popular music-makers.

By the end of this week - 12th August - you'll be able to check the website for the timetable of arrangements for the weekend. Along with the special events, there will be the last chance this year to visit the Start Point Lighthouse and go up the Tower (and onto the balcony) with the Keeper. Our local artists' studios will be open for you to visit, and so will the Sanday Spinners' studio. The Heritage Centre is packed with exciting finds and intriguing displays - a chance to see photographs of the extraordinary Pictish Symbol Stone uncovered by chance and fortunately spotted by sharp-eyed builders in July.

Local hostelries will be delighted to welcome you with Soulka Specials - check the 'Where to stay and eat' page for details. After the Sunday special lecture, there will be the Soulka Grand Prize Raffle draw - so make sure you've bought plenty of tickets during the weekend. This may be the last chance to buy one of the very popular Sanday Soulka T-shirts; we decided that adults look really cool in black with the white logo, but that youngsters should have a variety to choose from - see below.

To be absolutely ready for the final Soulka, why not order yours now - phone Tina on 01857-600393 and it'll be waiting for your arrival.

 Soon, you'll be able to go to the September page, and then click on the link to the timetable to see what's in store.

Meanwhile, have a look at the pages showing what happened in the first four Soulkas - April - Folk & Folklore; May - Stones & Bones (Archaeology); June - Music, Song & Dance; July - Wrecks & Signals. August was Food, Farming & Fishing, and very soon there'll be pictures of some of the action from another really successful weekend. 

Sanday is celebrating 2011 – year of Scotland’s Islands – by creating six special monthly long weekends…….

Each weekend has a theme, and while many of the events are related to that theme, there will be some others that are consistent throughout – Open Studios, informal music sessions, dances or concerts.
