Peoples Ford Boghall & Bathgate are UK Champions

Updated: Jun 13, 2023

Peoples Ford Boghall & Bathgate won the Grade 1 UK Pipe Band Championships in Lurgan, Northern Ireland on Saturday, with the drum corps under new Leading Drummer Kerr McQuillan placing second.

This was the band's first major championship win under P/M Ross Harvey, and the band's first since 2012. In favourable conditions, the band played it's Joanna's Hornpipe medley in what was an extremely high standard of contest.

The build up and performance will be featured in Episode 2 of the new Vloghall series, and we were extremely grateful to John Hughes and his stewarding & adjudicating staff who allowed the band to film from inside the arena.

You can watch an excellent quality recording of the band's performance below, with many thanks to Dronechorus:
