Welcome to the website of the Northern Meeting Piping Competitions.



The Northern Meeting Piping Competitions have emerged as the pre-eminent and most prestigious piping competition in the world. The Gold Medal for the classical piobaireachd music and the Gold Clasp for former winners, are the most sought after achievements for any piper.  The honour attaching to such success attracts pipers from the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, Europe and throughout the British Isles.

Entry to the competitions is restricted to those of the highest calibre and competition is intense. Only around 100 competitors are selected to take part in the various events. These include the classic Piobaireachd, March, Strathspey and Reel and Hornpipes and Jigs.  The competitions also cater for younger players with numbers in the junior competitions increasing to some 30-40, reflecting the expanding interest in schools.
