Workshop and Highland Gathering in Canberra, Australia

Have not had enough bagpiping experience at the 2017 SSEA Pipe Band Championships last weekend?  Not to worry, there are more coming!

Workshop and Highland Gathering 2017 will be held in Canberra, Australia this October. 

It's a great opportunity to participate in these events while you can visit a beautiful city of Canberra.  You will also see the familiar faces from the two bands that participated at our Championships :)
