Balmoral Castle Open Air Concert Event


To celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II 80th birthday there is an evening of Scottish and International entertainment at Balmoral Castle on Friday 30 June 2006.

The evening event which is called A Truly Scottish Evening is suitable for all the family and profits raised will go to the Anthony Nolan Trust charity which helps people suffering from leukaemia. This charity was specially chosen by the Queen in memorial to local lass Millie Forbes who died from leukaemia in August 2004. Before she died Millie bravely launched a campaign to persuade people to register as bone marrow donors. She raised over 200,000 and six people from her campaign became actual bone donors and their marrow successfully used in transplants.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.


It will be presented by the Radio 2 presenter and Scotsman Ken Bruce.

In between musical events and performances visitors should look to the skies to watch a stunning aviation display by the 2excel Aviation Team. The 2excel pilots are former Royal Air Force (RAF) Red Arrows pilots.
Later in the evening, as the summer night grows dark, there will be a firework display by Fireworx Scotland. There will also be fireworks going over the plane displays.

The evening will culminate in singing Happy Birthday to HRH The Queen.
