Piping At Forres, the European Pipe Band Championships 2017, takes place in the stunning setting of Grant Park, Forres on 24 June 2017. Thousands of pipers and drummers from far and wide, in over a hundred bands, will compete to be European Champions in their grade. Drum Majors and Highland Dancers will also compete in this event, run under the auspices of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association  (RSPBA).

The event not only offers world class piping but a range of other entertainment and over a hundred retail stalls. There are local producers showing why they have world wide reputations for excellence by showcasing their food and drink, and a craft and retail village with beautiful locally produced items of clothing, jewellery and much more.  Funfairs and beer tents add to the all round, whole family entertainment.

A great day out in a stunning location with friendly locals” was how one visitor put it when asked for his feedback.  Please come and join us!
