The recital by Angus MacColls (senior and junior) due to be given this Friday 20 March at Tulloch Castle, Dingwall, has been cancelled. This recital was being organised by the Lewis & Harris Piping Society.
Ken Cameron, Chairman of Lochaber Piping Society: ‘In common with most organisers, our Society has been forced to cancel both our Recital and Junior Piping and Drumming Competition, scheduled for 27th and 28th of this month.
‘The committee very much regrets having to take this action, but these are unusual circumstances. We may possibly try to resurrect these events later in the year, but will wait to see how the next month or three pan out.’
Ipswich Piping Society: ‘We have decided, in the light of yesterday’s government advice on the coronavirus crisis, to postpone its March 20 recital by Callum Beaumont. An alternative date will be announced as soon as possible.’
Following yesterday’s announcement on the cancellation of the British Pipe Band Championships at Paisley, Gourock Pipe Band Contest on May 10 has also been axed by Renfrewshire District Council.
Markinch and Ceres Highland games have just joined the list of cancelled events. See Piping Press Guide to the Games.
