Todd Bar World’s Week events announced

The University of Strathclyde’s Lord Todd Bar is in many ways the original venue for piping and drumming events during the days leading up to the World Pipe Band Championships, and the venue has again expanded its August schedule this year, while also introducing online ticketing.
Featured this year are sessions with Fred Morrison, Jim Kilpatrick, Willie McCallum and the return of the Karaoke Night on the day after the big contest for those not wanting the celebrations to end.
