A Piping Hot Competition in the Making
Date posted: July 23, 2015
Everything is coming together nicely for the Bridge of Allan Highland Games on 2nd August – in particular our Pipe Band competition is shaping up to be spectacular. We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have 31 fantastic pipe bands signed up to compete this year. You can find a full list bands attending on our website
The competitions will take place throughout the day and whatever time you arrive for the games you are likely to see some world class band performances. As the competition takes place the weekend before the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow, many bands will be rehearsing their performance in preparation for the Worlds.
The big event will undoubtedly be the march past of the massed pipe bands, which marks the climax of the games. At around 5.30, dependant on other events, Judy Murray, our Chieftain this year, will take the salute as the bands come into the arena and pass in front of the grandstand. Once all the bands are assembled, they play ‘Salute to the Chieftain’ It is a fantastic sight and sound and worth staying till the end of the day to experience.
We can’t wait. And hope to see you there.
