New Era For Novice Band

As the incredibly busy and successful 2012 season drew to a close, Boghall and Bathgate were already planning for the 2013 season and the years to come. Up until 2012, P/M Alvis Kerr had led the Novice Juvenile band for 9 consecutive seasons and had competed with the Boghall organisation for 38 years. However, after much deliberation, Alvis has decided that the time is now right for him to take a step back from the busy competition schedule that the band undertakes.

Your chance to purchase new Boghall merchandise!

Earlier this year Boghall and Bathgate launched a new range of merchandise sporting our new logo. Whilst we have sold some t-shirts and caps outwith the band, most of these items have been reserved and sold to band members only. However, lots of people outwith the band have been asking about getting some of the other items, so we felt it was only fair to open orders up to those outwith the band.

Great total raised at Fundraising Ceilidh

For the third year in a row, members of all three bands had a fantastic day at a fundraising ceilidh the day after the Cowal Championships in memory of our former snare drummer, Neil Cranston. The event took place at the Kaim Park Hotel and was a great success with the band playing a few tunes and a total of 10 ceilidh bands from all over Scotland also entertaining. The drum last played by Neil was also presented to his family on behalf of Andante Percussion and everyone at the band.
