Kempen Highland Games

From Friday the 8th May to Monday the 11th May a small section of the band attended Kempen Highland Games in Germany. Although not an official band engagement, the band had 6 of its members over in Germany for the weekend. For the most part of the two day event the four pipers and two drummers played in a mass band alongside German Pipe Band White Hackle Pipes and drums.

The close relationship between the two bands and the Games organisers has resulted in representatives of the band attending the games continuously for the last 7 years.

The weekend was a great success, with the games gaining one of it highest attendances, a very closely fought competition in the heavies event, great weather throughout and of course high quality music accompanying them.

Discussions about the bands attendance next year are already in full swing and we look forward to the long standing relationship with the games continuing.

The members of the band that attended the event would also like to thanks the families who volunteered to put them up for the weekend. Their warm hospitality always makes the weekend that bit more memorable.
