Ballarat Highland Gathering 2021 – Cancelled

Regrettably, on 7 October, Pipe Bands Victoria has received the following from the Federation University Pipe Band, the promoter of the Ballarat Highland Gathering:

“At a meeting held earlier this evening, the FedUni Pipe Band has made the decision to cancel the 2021 Ballarat Highland Gathering that was scheduled for late February 2021.

This is due to the unknown COVID restrictions that might still be in place in Victoria, an inability to restrict numbers to our Gathering and the time limitations for Bands to be “ready” for competing once restrictions ease.”
