As we enter our 9th year, we are excited and honoured to announce that this year’s gathering will again play host to The Paris International Highland Gathering Championship, the only SOBHD Championship to be permanently held in mainland Europe promoting the profile of Scottish Highland Dancing. The Championships will be run by Grampian Festivals (Rhona Lawrence) who will be responsible for the operation of the Championship event having successfully run Highland Dancing Championships for over twenty years. Billy Forsyth MBE will continue to be the Master of Ceremonies for all the Gathering events.

Theatre

Your Beautiful New Performance Venue - Presenting the Millesime Montevrain Theatre.
Opening in spring 2019, this brand new theatre venue situated in the pretty suburb of Montevrain, 5 minutes from the Disney hotels and theme parks and within the Disney ring road, has all the amenities and facilities you would expect from a state of the art performance theatre. Luxurious comfortable tiered seating, onsite restaurant and bar with spectacular veranda space, beautiful staging with professional lighting, sound and projection system. Add to this a bespoke changing area within the venue as well as local shops and amenities just across the road, we are excited to be calling the Millesime Montevrain Theatre the new home of the IGSHD Paris from 2019 onwards. Plus we will be providing a regular shuttle bus service for the 5 minute journey back and forth to your Disneyland Paris hotel throughout the day, letting you maximise your Disney experience around your competitions. For those guests that have interests outside of dancing and the parks, the theatre is only a 15 minute walk, or catch the No.43 bus, to the amazing Val d ’Europe, where you can see all of the wonders of the ocean at SEA Life, visit over 160 shops in the Val d ‘Europe Shopping Mall and over 110 shops at the La Vallee Village Designer Outlet or simply relax and enjoy a meal in the vast array of restaurants.
