Bagpipes to serenade the neighbourhood

Embrace yourself in all things Scottish from specialty foods to a 200-strong pipe band.

It’s almost that time of year again to hear the sounds of bagpipes resonating around the neighbourhood at the Highland Gathering.

De La Salle Holy Cross College in Victory Park, are proud to be hosting the event again this year on 27 May.

As always there will be Scottish dancers, giant inflatables, zip-lining, a boat swing and a tea and beer garden.

The highlight of the gathering is definitely the grand finale at 3.30pm with a 200-strong pipe and drum performance.

Goosebumps are felt for kilometres around as the crowd is serenaded by songs such as Flower of Scotland and Amazing Grace.


Where: De La Salle Holy Cross College (high school) 2-22 Road 3, Victory Park, Johannesburg

Time: 9am to 5pm

Cost: Entrance fees are R20 for students and R30 for adults
