The winner of this year's 14 & Under 4-Parted March / 2 x 2-Parted March category at the solo piping competition will win, courtesy of the National Piping Centre, a free place at one of the Autumn Junior Gathering Weekends held at the National Piping Centre in Glasgow.
Entries are now open for this year's solo piping competition and we've received outstanding backing for this year's competition from The National Piping Centre in Glasgow who have offered a free place at one of the Autumn Junior Gathering Weekends held in October at the National Piping Centre in Glasgow. They have also offered two free tickets for an evening concert at Piping Live 2023 (Glasgow)!
We are hugely grateful for the support offered by The National Piping Centre who have been hugely supportive of the festival's efforts to establish a new piping competition in South West Scotland.

About The National Piping Centre
The Great Highland Bagpipe is perhaps the best known of Scotland’s musical instruments and an ambassador for Scotland throughout the world. The National Piping Centre was founded as a charity to serve as a national and international centre of excellence for the instrument and its music.
Based in the city centre of Glasgow, Scotland, they incorporate a piping school with world-renowed piping teachers. Their auditorium is used for teaching, as well as hosting special events, and they are also licensed for weddings. They also house the Museum of Piping, which is home to part of the National Museums Scotland's collection of piping artefacts, their reference library, as well as a beautifully designed, boutique 8-bedroom hotel and restaurant which serves traditional Scottish food with a modern twist.
The National Piping Centre, a charity registered in Scotland, provides facilities of the very highest quality for both the piping and non-piping fraternity. Visitors and regulars, from both home and abroad, will equally enjoy the experience, whether they come for study, performance, or pleasure.
