The National Piping Centre and College of Piping to join forces
We’re pleased to share the news today that The College of Piping is to become part of the National Piping Centre.
From 1st May, we will operate under the name "The National Piping Centre, incorporating The College of Piping".
The National Piping Centre will continue to offer a full range of educational activities and qualifications, to act as a home to The National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland and to host the world’s biggest celebration of piping, 'Piping Live!', the Glasgow International Piping Festival.
This is positive news for the bagpipe world. The NPC will ensure that Scotland’s rich musical history continues to grow and thrive for future generations around the world.
