The biggest event in any piping fan's calendar is certainly the annual World Pipe Band Championships, affectionately known as The Worlds. The event, delivered by Glasgow Life in association with the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association, has had a long association with Glasgow, and for many years has been bringing top flight international piping competition and a wonderfully entertaining event to the city.

In August 2014 Glasgow Green will yet again play host to this remarkable event. Expect the usual exciting competition across all Grades and the fiercely contested Drum Major contest, as well as additional events and activities that will delight both piping fans and those looking for a great day out.
