The Northern Meeting Piping Competition

The Northern Meeting Piping Competition

Hailed as being the “Premier Solo Piping Contest in the World,” The Northern Meeting Piping Competition attracts pipers from across the globe.

Join us at Eden Court Theatre on August 30 & 31st to listen in awe as over 100 solo pipers compete in eight different classes.

Held since 1841, solo pipers from as far afield as the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, Europe and the British Isles flock to the Highland capital to take part in this most prestigious piping competition.

Spectators will witness the highest standard of solo piping and events include the classic Piobaireachd, March, Strathspey and Reel and Hornpipes and Jigs all musical experiences which no doubt will leave you with shivers down your spine and a thirst for more.

In Scotland’s Year of Young People, we are also delighted to be welcoming a number of junior competitors.

Held over two days, the Northern Meeting is the ultimate way to celebrate the finest piping the world has to offer.

The sunning riverside setting of Eden Court, set in the heart of Inverness, and with stunning views of the River Ness, it is also one of the most idyllically located venues in the country.
