Extended Closing Date: 6th August at 12 noon. Due to several requests the age limit has now been removed so the course is available to all young people.

The Piping and Drumming Adventure Week in Bushmills from Monday 13th - Friday 17th August is the place to be. There will be a little piping and drumming every day but then it will be off canoeing, surfing, sailing or one of the many adventure activities offered at the Bushmills Education Centre.

This is a full week residential with some top tutors and outdoor activities and all for £30 per day (£150/week). Spaces are limited so please see the attached file with the details on how you can reserve yours before the 6th August.

The Adventure Week is a joint promotion between the Ulster-Scots Agency and the Northern Ireland Branch.
