15 May World Pipe Band Championships 2019
World Pipe Band Championships – 16th & 17th August 2019
Coming back to Glasgow Green in August, the Championships take place over two days and highlight the amazing skill of 8000 pipers and drummers competing in this ultra Scottish event. Defending champions Inveraray and District will take on bands from around the globe as they contend to keep hold of their crown.
Follow the gripping theatrics of the contest of the Grade 1 enclosure, or just be entertained by the broad array of bands taking part throughout the day. Experience Highland Games, Highland Dancing, a Children’s Zone and superb food and drink.
First put on in 1947, the event now plays host to over 220 bands, around a quarter of which travel from more than 15 different countries. Almost half of all pipers and drummers entrants are aged 25 and under.
