Massed Pipe Band & Family Fun Day
Now a well-established tradition, the Massed Pipe Bands Day was initiated by the present Duke’s father who recognised in the spectacular setting of the Castle, the most evocative backdrop for an event of this nature.
A fantastic day out for all the family featuring Pipe Bands from across the Scottish Borders and Lothians. We are delighted to introduce a new programme for 2017 bringing together music and dance with a military and forces theme. Members of the armed forces and local emergency services will be in attendance and will provide demonstrations throughout the day including an assault course and climbing wall.
We are excited to welcome over 100 dancers from MPulsive Dance School for 2 special performances. Children’s activities include bouncy castle and toddler soft play, face painting and a craft tent with special appearances from Roxy Bear our Mascot. Our Crafters Courtyard and local artisan food stalls will be back again by popular demand. For all the foodies we have tempting hot food available from our Castle BBQ, Italian Coffee and Crepes and also award winning Giacopazzi’s ice-cream with refreshments for the adults provided by Tempest Brewery.
Join us for a Great Day Out.
