29 March Day

Fri 29 March, all day

Marking a moment in history

29 March 2019 is the date originally set for Britain to leave the European Union. Regardless of Brexit's many twists and turns, we invite you to join us in Huntly on 29 March to reflect on the journey so far, and to think about how we can become friends again. 

Let's make 29th March our day of returned harmony, bringing together people from all perspectives - Europhiles and Eurosceptics, old and young, people from here, there and everywhere. Join us for a day of discussions, dancing and renewed friendship across all boundaries. All are welcome to these free events in venues across Huntly; come for the full day, or any part of it.
