Again this year, Black Dragon Scotland performed at the Glen Urquhart Highland Games. Great turn-out by students and a surprise for the audience as Sempai Anna, pretending to be one of them, left her seat, walked of stage and took us all down… worked a dream!
Thanks to everyone who took part and helped behind the scenes.
