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 returns to Glasgow Green on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 August 2018.
The winners of 2017 were Inveraray and District Pipe Band. In 2017, 219 bands competed over the 2 days with over 35,000 people in attendance over the 2 days of competition and thousands more following the actions via live web streaming.
