Piping Hot Forres, the European Pipe Band Championships, takes place in the stunning setting of Grant Park, Forres. Thousands of pipers and drummers from far and wide, in over a hundred bands, will compete to be European Champions in their grade. Pipe Majors and Highland Dancers will also be competing in this event, run under the auspices of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association (RSPBA).
Local producers will be showing why they have world wide reputations for excellence by showcasing their food and drink. Craft stalls and a funfair will add to the all round entertainment. The pipe bands will gather on 28 June from far and wide, across Scotland, the UK, Europe and further afield, to compete in this event. Benromach Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky will again be the title sponsor.
Heralded last year as “the best major Championship event I’ve been to in a very long time” by one eminent piper and as “ one of the best (events) I’ve attended in a while, really well organised and (with) something for everyone even if you are not a Scottish music enthusiast” by a member of the media, Piping Hot Forres 2014 will again include a range of world class offerings in a friendly and fun environment.
