Reading Scottish Pipe Band’s roots stretch from Stranraer and involve performances across Europe, including Nice – the two ends of the E2 long-distance footpath which passes through Reading over the Horseshoe Bridge. They  performed a variety of Scottish, English and French pieces reflecting the length of the path.

During the one-hour performance beside the Kennet at The Oracle we invited school children from Oxford Road Primary School to join in the fun, there were lots of opportunities to ‘have a go’ and and out more about joining a new youth band, inspiring the next generation of pipers perhaps.
