LBPS Annual Collogue, AGM and Evening Concert - Saturday 8th October 2022

This year’s Collogue and AGM will take place in Perth on Saturday, 8th October. This will be the first visit of the Society to the town. The venue will be the historic Royal George Hotel on George Street. There will also be a concert in the evening at the same venue. 
The Collogue and AGM (9.00 for 9.30)

The Collogue will comprise some interesting presentations, sessions and the AGM. 

We will have four presentations - three before the AGM and one after – and we will end the afternoon with a session, so please bring your pipes. The sheet music for the tunes we will be playing can be found by clicking on this link.

The presentations and their speakers are:
