Thornton Highland Gathering Information (Updated)

Organisers have asked us to point out that solo piping entries for this well-run little games in Fife can be made on the field tomorrow (July 1) until 11 am.

Venue is Memorial Park, Thornton. There are events for senior and junior pipers. Judges for the solo piping are E Anderson and A Frater.

Thornton had also planned to stage a pipe band and drum major contest with  Open, Grade 2, Grade 3 (March, Strathspey & Reel) and Grade 4 events. Unfortunately there was not sufficient interest to justify these contests going ahead and instead the promoters have hired three duty bands to supply the pipe band music during the afternoon. These are: St Andrews, Methil & District and Kircaldy & District.

How to get there:Check PP tomorrow for solo results. Check out our Guide to the Games here.
