Pipe Band Nationals coming to Invercargill in 2025
The Band is excited to announce that we have won the rights to host the New Zealand Pipe Band Championships in 2025.
Save the date: 7-8 March 2025, at the Cricket Grounds, Queens Park.
The Championships were last held in Invercargill in March 2020. The two- day event brought 49 bands to Invercargill and drew large crowds to the city street march and Queens Park.
Band President Brendan Copeland said “he was absolutely stoked and although there would be two years of hard work to get cracking into it would absolutely be worth it”.
Hosting the Championships will be fantastic for all the families involved in pipe banding to be able to compete in front of their families and friends.
The event is great spectacle for the Southland community to come and enjoy the call of the pipes, the beat of the drums and the swirl of the tartans. Last time around 7,000 people either participated or attended the event.
The event will be livestreamed and watched by a global audience.
