March to the Museum
- 16 May 2015 12-4pm
In 1914 men from all over Mackay Country, marched off to war to the rousing sound of the pipes. Help us remember those brave men from WW1 who defended home and country as we follow in their footsteps and 'March to the Museum'. Explore the role of pipers during the Great War through the story of local piper Alick Mackay, listen to the evocative playing of our pipers and discover why pipers from this part of the world were, and still are, so highly prized for their skill. This great family-friendly event promises to provide a spirited look at both our military and musical history with plenty of activities to keep the children amused. Refreshments will be available.
