On 16 December at the Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham, and on 22 & 23 December 2017 at Wembley Arena (SSE Arena) in London, The Reading Scottish Pipe Band were honoured to be asked back to join André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra on their UK tour. The band had an amazing time on all three days and every member of the band were thrilled to be asked to perform again with such a fantastic orchestra and on such a big stage
We also have a selection of photos from the concerts we have played with André Rieu both in 2017 and 2012 in an article in the Pictures of the Band section
On 23rd September we took part in the Reading University Freshers' Fayre. We are based really close to the University, so if you missed us but are still interested in joining the band, even if you've never played before, drop us an email or contact us via Facebook. If you are interested in drumming and/or competing in the World Championships, even better.
