Summary

A new shinty festival taking place in Lewis.

Dr Alasdair Barden and Neil Ferguson discuss a new shinty festival in Lewis, 'The Lord of the Isles Festival'. They have both been involved in organising the event and discuss why it was set up, who will be taking part, the numbers that they are expecting and how difficult it was to organise. They also talk about the award that Prince Charles gave to the competition, and the other events that will be taking place while the youngsters are in Lewis for this festival.
