The World Pipe Band Championships is a truly Scottish occasion, featuring bands from all over the world competing to be the best of the best. Join over 200 bands featuring around 8000 pipers and drummers for a vivid experience of some of the sights and sounds of Scotland. Follow the compelling drama of the competition of the Grade 1 arena or simply enjoy the wide range of bands competing across the day and sample Highland Games, Highland Dancing, a Children’s Zone and outstanding food and drink. There is nothing quite like the sights and sounds of Glasgow Green during the World Pipe Band Championships.
