The 2017 Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships are taking place at James Gillespie’s High School on Sunday 12th March.

Book your place and join us for a day of great competition, and a showcase for our talented young musicians.  There are categories for every level, for those new to competing, to bands at the top of their game. And some fantastic prizes to be won. This year we have two new additions:

  • The ‘Endeavour Award’.  This is your chance to celebrate a band that achieves much more than just a competitive edge. Cash prizes will be awarded to bands that demonstrate any one or more of the following attributes: perseverance and resilience in the face of challenges; community contribution; enthusiasm and camaraderie; innovation; and/ or efforts to include everyone regardless of circumstances.
