Isle of Islay marches into the circle at a rain-soaked Bught Park at the 2019 Europeans.

Tickets are now on sale for the European Pipe Band Championships, which will take place in Inverness next June.

Tickets can be purchased from the Piping Inverness website:

Kevin Reilly, Chairman of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association, said: “After an absence of two years, there’s excitement and anticipation about the European Pipe Band Championships – bands are desperate to get back competing.

“We are optimistic that pipe bands will embrace the return of major competitions, and that Piping Inverness will attract a similar crowd to 2019.”

LCC Live is to deliver the major pipe band competition in 2022 and 2023.

The European’s are scheduled to take place at Bught Park on Saturday June 25, 2022.
