From the Bagpipe Society, go on, you know you want to....
This is a reminder that March 10th 2013 is International Bagpipe Day and once again the Bagpipe Society are encouraging pipers around the world to lay on grassroots events that will celebrate our wonderful instrument.
Last year, as well as our International Bagpipe Conference at SOAS in London, people organised picnics, dances, school visits and public talks, as far afield as Seattle and Athens!
This year we have a flagship event at the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford (on Saturday March 9th) but we're also planning the Great Bagpipe Convergence. We want everyone to go out on March 10th at noon local time, play your pipes, and post a photo or video on our facebook page:
