but no dancing.

The Society encourages young members of Perth and District Pipe Band to play at the cèilidhs.

The Perth Pipe Band is led by the Society’s Honorary Piper - Pipe Major Alastair Duthie. Admission is £6 for Members and £7 for Non-Members – for an evening’s entertainment plus refreshments!

Membership for a year is £3 - fantastic value!!
