A host of incredible Scottish Pipe Bands, featuring young up-and-coming talent from all over Scotland, are taking part in the capitalâ€™s piping spectacular – The Edinburgh Pipe Band Championship – that takes place at The Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston on 23rd August. Organised by The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland and now in its fourth year, the prestigious event attracts over 25 bands from across central Scotland as well as around 3000 spectators. Organisers hope to build on the success of last yearâ€™s event with more family entertainment to keep spectators busy in between competitions, with activitiesÂ including paintballing, a funfair, bouncy castles, face painting and new food andÂ drink stands. FollowingÂ concern over the disbandment of pipe bands in countries with long establishedÂ Scottish links, such as St. Andrewâ€™s and Caledonian Society in Canada, the organisersÂ are delighted to welcome several young competitors to this yearâ€™s event, includingÂ Adam Dandie from Boghall and Bathgate Novice Pipe Band who is aged just ten but isÂ already an accomplished musician. Stephen Hutt, Chief Executive of the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society ofÂ Scotland, said, â€œThe Edinburgh Pipe Band Championship is an event that celebratesÂ the remarkable piping talent we have here in Edinburgh and further afield.Â OurÂ piping tradition is something Scotland is very proud of and the Society is delightedÂ to support its advancement. We have pulled out all the stops to create a family-festival event that we are confident will appeal to everyone.â€ Tickets for this yearâ€™s event are on sale from http://www.edinburghpipebandchampionship.com.
