Our Pipes & Drums have just returned from another fabulous trip to Southern Japan.
This was their seventeenth trip and once again, this included many highlights and new friendships formed. The band visited several schools where they shared cultural experiences with the Japanese pupils including a quiz, origami lessons and lunch.
Our band performed at the Global Arena, a fish market, Arita Porcelain festival and the colourful Hakata Dontaku Parade. They also performed at a concert in the Yurix Centre for a near capacity audience.
One pupil summed up his feelings during a thank you speech saying ‘The memories will live in my heart forever’.
