We couldn’t have asked for a better service! Drew replied to my emails very quickly. Nothing was too much hassle and arrived early giving me peace of mind and giving my loved one the send of he deserved. Thank you very much Drew



  • How long do you play for?

    As weddings can often run late, I quote for 3 different packages, each package is focussed on a certain point in the day rather than a length of time. I factor in an additional hour in the price so there is never any issue or conflict when things are running over.

  • Do you have your own PA and lighting?

    Not required.

  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?

    Fully insured for public performance. PAT testing not relevant.

  • How much space do you require?

    Enough to stand up!

  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?

    As long as it can be played and remains recognisable on the bagpipes we're good. Some tunes just don't work we only have 9 notes..
