To the delight of almost 900 children in the Scottish Borders, the Loch Ness monster paid a visit in November 1985. Fourteen different schools took part in a visit by the Opera for Youth workshop, and all were given a chance to put on their own show. Prior to the team’s tour, schools received a pack containing all the relevant music and ideas for appropriate artwork to go along with the performances.

Here, youngsters from Burnfoot are dressed up as press photographers on the lookout for a photo of Nessie.
