Welcome to the Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships

The Championships is a showcase of the talent of our young musicians designed to promote the playing of our national instruments. The second Sunday in March sees hundreds of young people from across Scotland, and sometimes further afield, converge on Livingston in West Lothian, for a day of music, friendship and fun.

This year we welcomed the First Minister who met many of the pupils and parents during the day and presented the prizes.

The 2019 Championships will take place on Sunday 10th March at Inveralmond Community High School in Livingston.

The Scottish Schools Pipes and Drums Trust, is the charity that organises the Championships. The Trust offers cash grants, guidance and bagpipe loans to help introduce piping and drumming tuition to state schools.  If you would like to know more please contact us through the SSPDT website.
