Pipes & Drums - Pipefest 2005

Published on 7 June 2005 Categories: Senior School,  Music & Drama,  Pipe Band,  Extra-Curricular

Calling all Former Pipers and Drummers You are invited to celebrate 100 years of piping and drumming at George Watson’s College by helping to break a world record and raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care on the afternoon of Sunday 21st August 2005. Our plan is to have our own 80-100 massed band of Watsonian pipers and drummers marching through Holyrood Park with another15000 or so musicians. When finished we would then proceed to the School to have our own “Beating of the Retreat” followed by light snacks and possibly some impromptu playing whilst catching up with friends old and new. This will be a memorable occasion for all concerned and we sincerely hope that each and every individual can come along. Further details can be obtained from the PipeBand or the Development Office.
