OUR 2017 CALENDAR
'HADDINGTON OLD AND NEW'
Our 2017 calendar is now available. This year's theme is 'Haddington Old and New' and features 13 photos - ten from Haddington and others from East Linton, Gifford and Pencaitland. We've sourced 19th and 20th century photos with the help of the John Gray Centre and our brilliant photographer Nick Callaghan has taken new shots at the same locations. Then we've blended the shots together to create images (such as the one here of Court Street) which not only provide a window into the world of those who lived in our community in earlier times but also enable us to share space and seemingly time with them.
The calendar is A4 size, opening to A3 with a month to view per spread. We'd be delighted to send copies out to you, using PayPal for payment. The calendar costs £5, plus postage and packing, and if you'd like to place an order, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org. They're also available locally at shops and other outlets displaying our On Sale Here poster.
Thank you and we hope you enjoy the photos.
For more about the calendar see our News Bulletin page.
Welcome to Haddington Pipe Band
Haddington Pipe Band is a community band, dedicated to promoting piping and drumming in East Lothian and to providing entertainment at local events such as gala days, community and charity events, and farmers' markets. In November 2009, we were delighted to be chosen as the Scottish Pipe Band of the Year at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards.
The band runs classes for beginners and tuition for the more advanced players. There is a full range of ages and abilities within the band and encouragement is given at all levels. New members are always welcome, please contact the band secretary for further information.
From our extensive range of traditional marches, jigs and slow airs a new repertoire is chosen
each season. Although new tunes are always appreciated by our audiences, the old favourites
are expected too and are always practiced at our regular band practice evenings.
Bookings are available throughout the year for the full band or individual pipers for that special occasion. Details and further information can be found on our Events Diary page.
For up to date information on the band, its recent activities, performances and programme of forthcoming events please visit our News Bulletin Board.
