Playing categories are designed to provide a forum for top level competition as well as a positive and encouraging environment for school pipe bands with minimal or no competing experience.  The closing date for entries is 26th January 2019.

To enter a quartet requires just three pipers with an adult instructor, or four pipers. Pipe bands can enter categories ranging from Debut to Juvenile.  Schools that need more players to form a quartet or a band can join forces with other schools in the same local education authority. All schools or combined schools that enter a quartet or a pipe band are eligible to enter the Freestyle competition which brings pipes, drums and other instruments together where the emphasis is on music, innovation and fun.

We offer help with travel costs and some great prizes too.

Some of the categories will require you to enter details of your players and their RSPBA grades. If you have difficulties listing who your players will be, please contact Iain MacPherson at:
