Pipe Band Centenary Celebrations

Pipe Band Centenary Website Tile In PageFriday 15 – Saturday 16 March 2019

Our Pipe Band Centenary will be a wonderful celebration, bringing together our past and present Pipe Band members and supporters over the last 100 years.

The success of our band is largely due to the outstanding leadership of our Pipe Band Directors, and the exceptionally high calibre of piping and drumming tutors. We also recognise the enormous commitment and passion exhibited by all our students who make us so proud of their achievements over the last 100 years.

Please join us in celebrating 100 years of Pipe Band history and success, it will be an exciting weekend to reminisce old times, and look forward to what the next century may bring for the St Andrew’s College Pipe Band.

Tickets are limited, so be sure to get in quick, as these events will sell out quickly.

Proudly sponsored by: Caxton
