Hogmanay is the traditional celebration of the new year in Scotland and the William Trent House Museum commemorates Trent’s Scottish heritage with a Hogmanay program during Trenton’s Patriots Week.
This year the program will feature members of the Greater Trenton Pipes and Drums on bagpipes, a video on making traditional Scottish shortbread, and retelling of Scottish folktales. Scottish and other treats will be provided along with warm cider and chilled eggnog. Visitors will be encouraged to join in singing Auld Lang Syne and burning written wishes for the new year.
This free program will be held outside if weather permits. Indoor space is limited, so pre-registration is encouraged. Pre-registrants will be admitted in order of registration if the program is held indoors. All pre-registrants will be notified the morning of the event of the program venue and, if indoors, their admission status.
