Forres and District Pipe Band were grateful to the funding from Berry Burn which allowed them to subsidise the trip to celebrate the 1100 Anniversary of the State of Goslar. The town of Vienenburg, Goslar is twinned with Forres. The band played in front of the Imperial Palace and the historic railway station in Vienenburg. The highlight of the trip was playing with the Hamburg Police Orchestra. They played a special rendition of Highland Cathedral. The funding allowed members of the band from 14 to 69 yrs enjoy a memory making trip whilst representing their own home town on an international stage.
