2020 RSPBA Summer School - CANCELLED


Media Center Image

Following the recent government announcement surrounding the COVID 19 pandemic, the Summer School Principal along with the Board of Directors have taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 RSPBA Summer School.

In consideration of the forecast given by the Scottish Government regarding the management of public meetings, in that there will be a continued level of social distancing required for some time to come, essentially precludes a live Summer School event being managed.

The initial vision of a virtual School for this year had been sketched out but the management and administration of the event is not feasible within the confines of the present regime in which the Association finds itself during the national management of the social and economic challenges of the Covid 19 pandemic.

It is with great regret that we must recognise the limitations placed upon us in this current year and accept that the Association is unable to convene a PDQB curriculum based Summer School for Piping and Drumming in 2020.

All Summer School fees already paid will be refunded in full.
