Whether this is your first time visiting Paisley to compete in the championships, or you’ve been with us for the past three years, we want to extend you a warm welcome to our town!

We love hosting the British Pipe Band Championships in Paisley – it’s a real highlight of our events calendar.

Please note that, for this year’s championships, there will be a specified area for all members of the bands. This area will host the bus parking and will also be the area where any gazebos and pop-up tents that teams wish to bring to the event can be erected. There will be no facility for pop-up tents within the main arena.

We’ve linked here to other information we think you might find useful for your stay with us. Good luck to all of the bands competing this year! We’re looking forward to seeing you on Saturday 18 May.
