    After an astounding weekend at Butlins, our band secretary has suggested that we attend the Pipefest in Edinburgh this August. Is anyone else thinking of going? Has anyone been before? Any info appreciated!!

    i'm doing it this year, with my mate, its to raise a lot of cash to the cancer charity.
    theres loads more info on www.piefest.com
    at the moment theres about 4,500 som far, so i mean as long as you can put your left foot first and play a few tunes, your in.

    i think its a really good idea and loads of brass bands should do it,
    theres pipe bands from all over the world coming so it would be a great Weekend

    I am really up for it. I know a few others in the band are interested in going, but we will probably not get a full band to go. I have seen the website and it looks like it is going to be a good event. Even if there is only five of us willing to go, we will still be there doing our bit, and probably drinking loads. No doubt I will see you there!!

    My band Newland Concert brass have their name down to play at it. Should be a decent laugh, although there's not a lot of brass or wind bands doing it, so it may be a case of circling the wagons from all those nasty bagpipes!
