World Pipe Band Championships: 12-13 August 2016

This weekend Glasgow will once again hold the World Pipe Band Championships.

By far the largest pipe band contest in the world, the Worlds attracted over 200 bands and 40,000 spectators over two days of contest in 2015, and is expected to top those numbers this year.

The current reigning champions are Shotts and Dykehead Pipe Band of Scotland, who last year brought the title back to Scottish soil after a 10 year drought which saw Simon Fraser University (Canada), St Laurence O'Toole (Ireland), and Field Marshal Montgomery (Northern Ireland) all win the championship on numerous occasions.  

Also in the mix are the Manawatu Scottish Society and New Zealand Police Pipe Bands who will be representing New Zealand in the Grade 1 field.
