Piping At Forres 2054, to be held on Saturday 27 June in Grant Park, is looking for volunteers to help run the event.  To register an interest in assisting us in 2015, whether or not you were able to help us last year, please contact us at volunteer@pipingatforres.com

Piping Hot Forres, the European Pipe Band Championships was one of the highlights of 2014, attracting some 18,000 people to Grant Park last June. The organisers, working through the not-for-profit company Forres Events Limited, who themselves work in a voluntary capacity and are not paid, are hoping for an even bigger turn out in 2015.  Chairman Ian Widdowson who runs Beaver Travel in Forres said:  “Our sponsors, including our title sponsor, Benromach Speyside Single Malt Whisky, are crucial to helping us cover the cost of the event and keep ticket prices at an affordable sum, but our volunteers are a vital ingredient to the success of the day and our ability to welcome thousands of people to a great day’s entertainment in Grant Park.”

Sandra MacIver who is coordinating the volunteers again this year said:  “We hope the people of Forres will be as willing to help us make the 2015 event as enjoyable and memorable as the last two years. The success of the event will again depend on the people from the Forres area helping set up the Grant Park, doing tasks on the day and tidying up after the event”.
