Nithraid is fast approaching and we are excited to have a wide range of activities and workshops suitable for all ages at the Nithraid Village this year! Here’s what you can get involved in on Saturday 31st August:
Join Blueprint100 straight from their procession to carry on the fun and wonder in an array of magical activity. Taste some salty popcorn, make your own moon inspired bath-bomb and salty scrubs, learn some enchanted spells and take part in your very own ritual, before leaving with a protective gift.
Battlestations LTD will be showcasing some of the newest games that the market has to offer on board their battle trailer. These games are suitable for a variety of ages. They will also be providing a virtual reality experience of the boat race, made especially for Nithraid, so that visitors to the Nith Village can experience the race from land!
Upcycled World: Super Shiny Spinners
Play and get creative with everyday household rubbish and make your very own Super Shiny Spinner to take home. There’s pens, broken jewellery, bottle tops and DVDs to bring the magic. After practising your spinning moves, enter The Arena for a Spinning Match. Be inspired, have fun and become a champion eco-warrior.
Suitable for all ages, that’s you too Mum & Dad, Nan & Papa!
Nithlight: Chladni Plate Demonstration
As part of Nithraid Nighttime, we have a specially commissioned light installation coming to the Mill Green called ‘Nithlight’. Throughout the day, the Nithlight Team will have a Chaldni Plate demonstration at the Nithraid Village; watch as vibrations create Celtic patterns through salt and sound. They will also be hosting a paint pouring workshop, where you can create expressive art in fluid motion.
