Specsavers announced as Festival Sponsor for Piping Live! 2019

Piping Live! is delighted to announce that Specsavers will be a new sponsor for the sixteenth edition of the festival this year.

As part of the sponsorship, Specsavers will be running two talks about hearing protection and its importance for musicians as part of this year’s festival programme. These will take place in The National Piping Centre Auditorium on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th August at 12noon. Specsavers will also offer free hearing tests at the Street Cafe throughout the week.

Roddy MacLeod, Piping Live! Festival Director said: “We are delighted to welcome Specsavers as sponsors for Piping Live! 2019. Hearing and hearing protection is so important to pipers and drummers that we feel this is a natural connection and will bring some fantastic additions to the Piping Live! programme.”

Jill McArthur, divisional chairperson for Specsavers Scotland, said: “We are delighted to be sponsor of this year’s Piping Live! in Glasgow. With bands from all over the world coming to Glasgow, this is a real showcase event.

The impact that music has on our lives can be incredible and as part of Specsavers’ offering we also offer hearing checks as well as eye tests.

Enjoying music is both a visual and audio experience so we know how important it is to ensure that both eyes and ears are checked on a regular basis to enjoy them to the fullest. This is sure to be a spectacular event and we are excited to be a part of it.”
