Details required for the expression are outlined below:

Applications are now open for all pipe bands to attend the Highland Games at Amulet, held at Amulet Vineyard, Beechworth, Victoria.

This is a unique event, set in Victoria’s beautiful high country with sweeping views of the vineyard, hills and valleys in all directions. It’s a family focused, fun day out and we’re looking for a band who will embrace the spirit of the day. Further information about the event can be found on our website http://amuletwines.com.au/highland.html

In previous years we have had appearances from The Victorian Police Pipes and Drums, the Drones and Sticks from Napier NZ, Hawthorn Pipe Band, Greater Bendigo Pipes and Drums as well as our local pipe bands from Wangaratta and Albury/Wodonga.

Please note that the event date has changed from previous years to Saturday 3rd May 2014.

We invite bands to submit an expression of interest. Bands are required to perform at the opening of the event and two 15-20 minute performances throughout the day.

Please provide the following information:
· Name of band and contact details (phone and email)

· Number of performers in the band

· Any additional information that makes your band unique, eg. a unique playlist, maybe a member of the band with a great story, youngest/oldest member?

· List your appearance fee

Solo pipers are also invited to attend. Please provide your name, contact details and any additional information about yourself.

Please email expressions of interest to by Friday 31st January. A decision will be made by Friday 7th February.
