The National Piping Centre Adult Winter Gathering

February 6th, 2023 - February 9th, 2023

Join the NPC Adult Gatherings in 2023. The National Piping Centre is bringing you a series of Adult Gatherings in 2023 for pipers aged 18+, which have been designed to give a fantastic social learning experience. This year we will be running in person workshops  as well as online events.

The dates for our 2023 schools are:

Winter Adult Gathering: 6-9 February
Spring Adult Gathering: 24-27 April
Summer Adult Gathering : 31 July-3 August
Autumn Adult Gathering: 30 October-2 November

Our schools will run in two timezones, one for in person teaching and one for online students. The in-person school will run during the day UK time (9am – 5pm UK time), with the online school running in the evenings (3pm – 9pm UK time). There will be no option for online learning during the day, or in person learning in the evening. For the online schools to run in 2023, we require a minimum of 6 students to register. Teachers for each school will be announced ahead of the event.

The school costs £275 in person and £240 online for the four days.


Where will we meet?

The in person schools will take place at one of the two National Piping Centre locations in Glasgow City Centre or West End. This will be confirmed nearer the time of your school. For our online schools, you will join us on Zoom each day for your day of tuition! Once you have registered, we will be in touch with more information about the school and how you can log in each day.

What will I learn?

Over the four days there will be group lessons, 1-2-1 tuition, Masterclass workshops and more for pipers and drummers. Each piping student will be provided with a digital music pack so everyone will have new music to learn.

What will the school cost?

It is £250 GBP to register for a place on one of our  in person schools and £220 GBP for an online school. Registrations will open shortly.
