Shetland Hamefarin 2010

In June 2010, Shetland will be hosting a Hamefarin, something they do every decade or so.  A fortnight of special events will be designed to attract Shetlanders around the world home to visit, and will also raise the profile of Shetland and its products.  There’s a website and a first newsletter.

With Year of Homecoming 2009 just about to start, and a Year of Island Culture proposed for 2011, should we be thinking about a Hebridean Homecoming event?  Please comment!

  1. Sounds like a great idea! I’ve been thinking of a trip to visit my roots in the coming year. It would be ideal to plan that around a special event like this. Please post any plans you might have.
