March 9th-Oxford 2013

This year, on Saturday March 9th, the  flagship event for International Bagpipe Day was held at the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford. Throughout the day we had  guest speakers, performances, pipe makers, pipes to try and much more! The LBPS was represented by Julian Goodacre, Callum Armstrong and Pete Stewart who gave presentations and performances. Sunday March 10th 2013 was chosen to be a day to celebrate the world’s bagpipes and piping traditions with reports of events reported ranging from a pipe band performance in an underground cavern in South Africa, to a party on an Athenian hill in Greece. The day was also celebrated in Nigeria, and even in the Scottish Highlands::
