Glasgow Police Pipe Band announce that Pipe Major Alisdair McLaren has, with regret decided to stand down as Pipe Major due to unforeseen and pressing family matters in his native Australia. This has resulted in him taking the difficult decision to return to Australia on a permanent basis. We wish Alisdair all the very best at a very difficult time. Following Alisdair’s decision on Friday, the band management group has put in place a strategy to appoint a new Pipe Major. The 45 band members who have been working for the 2020 season since October will continue to do so.
At this point we welcome applications and expressions of interest for the role of Pipe Major. Applications will be treated in strictest confidence and should be sent to the following email address:
We can confirm that a robust management and financial infrastructure remains in place.
Applications for the role will close on Tuesday 11th February 2020.
