Dave Adam, chairman of Scottish Fire Brigades Heritage Trust, said: “We are proud once again to host the Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland at our charity concert to celebrate the 200-year anniversary of the Fire Service in Scotland.

“The Band has been particularly busy over the past few years, playing at the late Queen’s funeral and at the Coronation ceremonies of King Charles in London and Edinburgh.

"The concert will feature a wide range of music from traditional military, folk, movie themes and much more and will be accompanied by pipers from the Army School of Piping, Edinburgh."

Malcolm McFetridge, centre manager at Skypark, said: “We are delighted to be able to support the Scottish Fire Brigades Heritage Trust’s concert, which marks 200 years of the UK Fire Service, who continue to put public safety first and to save lives.

"We hope that everyone will get behind the concert and make a difference to the veterans who play such a crucial role in our communities.”
