About

The biggest event in any piping fan's calendar is certainly the annual World Pipe Band Championships, affectionately known as 'The Worlds'. The event, delivered by Glasgow Life in association with the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association, has had a long association with Glasgow, and for many years has been bringing top flight international piping competition and a wonderfully entertaining event to the city.

The World Pipe Band Championships will return to Glasgow Green on Friday 14 and Saturday 15 August. Tickets are on sale now.

In 2014, 223 pipe bands congregated on Glasgow Green to compete, with some 30,000 people attending the event, and thousands more following the action via live web streaming. Field Marshal Montgomery, from Northern Ireland, won the 2014 World Champions title.
