The latest news

Welcome to our new website!

Welcome to the brand new Boghall and Bathgate website. 2012 marks an exciting year for the organisation as we celebrate our 40th birthday! We have a variety of events to look forward to from our regular competing commitments to the biggest pipe band concert of the year which is aptly named, ‘Forte’. With that in mind we felt it was important for us to develop a new, vibrant website through which we can communicate with the vast reaches of the pipe band fraternity.

We have built this site in house using some of the extensive talent within the band ranks and we hope that you will enjoy some of the new features of the site. We have replaced our regular guestbook with the ability to comment directly on news articles as they are published and have installed Twitter and Facebook feeds for up to the minute news from the band. We have added detailed player profiles and have installed a comprehensive media archive stretching back to the beginnings of the band. Have a look at some of the early photos and videos and see if you can spot some of the more senior members of the grade one band in their youth back in the 70s and 80s!

We have also added a secure online shop for the first time and are proud of the high quality merchandise we are able to offer. Over the coming months we aim to deliver a series of video blogs which aim to give an insight into the band’s preparation for the season and to highlight the incredible amount of behind the scenes work required for the ‘pre-world’s’ concert. We hope over time to bring you clips from the band’s leaders and aim to deliver some post-contest reports and discussion about how the band is run.

We are delighted with the look and feel of the new site and hope that you enjoy it too. We are always keen to receive feedback and if there is anything that you would like to see included please get in touch via the Contact page.
