The fun day with a Scottish flavour, which is supported by the Herts Advertiser, will be held in Rothamsted Park, Harpenden, on Sunday, July 13, and the proceeds will be donated to Arthritis Care, Carers in Herfordshire and Life Skills Programme in local schools.
Five pipe bands will participate on the day and there will be solo piping and Highland dancing competitions as well as Highland Games events.
