New Zealand Pipe Band Championships

New Zealand Pipe Band Championships

This weekend pipes bands from across the country will converge on Fielding to compete in the annual New Zealand Pipe Band Championships.

Held on Friday 11 March and Saturday 12 March, the national contest is the culmination of a competitive season that for many pipe bands began in November last year and, of course, determines the New Zealand Pipe Band Champions for 2016.

This year five bands will be competing in Grade 1 for the top prize, including current and four-time national champions Canterbury Caledonian Society Pipe Band. Grade 1 bands will compete in their main music events on Saturday, while bands across all other grades will have their music events split across both days (all bands will, however, compete in the Street March event on Friday afternoon).

Fielding will also mark the first time Scots in Spirit makes an appearance at a National Contest! We will have a stall at the competition park on both days, featuring a range of highland apparel, piping supplies, and drumming supplies, so we do encourage you to take the opportunity to come and have a look at what we have on offer!

Best of luck to all competitors, and see you there!
