There's a STORM brewing
Made from entirely recycled materials, STORM’s eyes are the colour of oyster shells, her hair thick strands of kelp, her voice the chorus of the waves. Aided by eight puppeteers, STORM will walk the streets of Scotland. She began her journey as part of Celtic Connections’ inaugural Coastal Connections Day in January 2020, as one of the first events to mark Scotland’s official year of Coasts and Waters 2020. Now, following a break as a result of the pandemic, STORM is due to walk again in late summer and autumn 2021.
And the best news is she's making her way to Oban!
Date for your diary
STORM will be parading the streets of Oban on October 24th. The plan is to leave Station Square at 10.30am, but pop down early for some music and entertainment. She will make her way up to the North Pier and then on to the Corran Halls in what is sure to be a spectacular morning in the town.
