In pictures: British Pipe Band Championships 2018

Monday 21st May, 2018

Thousands turn out for world’s best pipers as Paisley hosts British Pipe Band Championships.

A huge turnout of families from Renfrewshire and beyond enjoyed entertainment including a funfair and Highland dancing competition, plus sporty activities from Renfrewshire Leisure, Paisley Rugby Club, and Renfrewshire’s award-winning Street Stuff team.

Many pipers and their pals also took the chance to relax in the sunshine at the bar and international food village, while there was a range of street traders in attendance.

The competition will return on Saturday 18 May 2019 and you can read more on our event page below.


I regularly visit the Paisley Museum and Art Galleries and Paisley Arts Centre and try to attend as many of the festivals and events in the town as possible... I particularly enjoy Sma’ Shot Day.
