Pipes N' Drums

While a great number of pipe bands exist purely for the enjoyment and performance of the music, playing on parade and in festivals and tattoos, the primary focus for most bands today is competition. Since 1930, when the Scottish Pipe Band Association (Now the Royal SPBA) was formed, there has been an event known as the World Pipe Band Championships held in Glasgow every August. 

Compulsory Massed Bands and March Past are scheduled for the Grand Opening at 12:30 pm. Bands are requested to be at the forming up points 15 minutes beforehand.

Compulsory Massed Band Awards Ceremony are scheduled immediately following Band competitions at about 3pm.
