Thunderstruck

About Thunderstruck

The true story of the greatest bagpiper who ever lived. A play exploring how the traditions of bagpipe music were rocked by a bin man from Perth, and how he changed the life of one young piper from Fife, forever. Take whatever romantic notions you have of bagpipes and leave them at the door.

“Had no idea what to expect from @thunderstruckgd today but it was immense” - Gary West BBC Pipeline

“Absolutely blown away by @thunderstruckgd play, hope to see it on stage again soon" - Patrick Grady MP

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Thunderstruck are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
