    FUNKQUEST with The First Piper Ross Jennings

    While looking for people who do 'Unusual Jobs' we found 'First Piper' Ross OC Jennings who travels the world playing the Bagpipes.

    Are there really people who enjoy the sound of Bagpipes?

    I bet you didn't think that those harsh, ear drum splitting, droney instruments could give you access to just about every country in the world.

    The British YoYo Association was founded by Luke Roberts and a couple of colleagues and it has become part of a world wide phenomenon of Regional, National, European and Asian competitions.
    Who would have thought that a piece of string, with a bit of wood wrapped round the end of it, could make it so big?

    We found Luke Roberts, while looking for 'unusual sports' and he truly is an expert with the YoYo.
    This 'Toy' usually has an upsurge of popularity once a decade, so look out for what's coming next...

    What was the dress code? What were the hours like and could you sit down?

    All this and more...
