LBPS Annual Competition 2022 – Saturday 9th April 2022

Linlithgow Burgh Halls


The committee of the LBPS are looking forward to welcoming members to the first full live LBPS competition since 2019.  We encourage you to come and have a go at competing, whatever stage you are at in your small-piping/ Border piping “career”. It’s a supportive atmosphere where you will meet great people, have a chance to listen to a wide range of playing and get constructive feedback on your performance.


Entry fees:

Members:          £2.50 per class 

Non-members:  £5.00 per class 

Spectators:       Free

The booking form is available below.


The venue will be Linlithgow Burgh Halls which is an interesting historic venue with a small museum in the centre of the town, close to the railway station (on the main Glasgow to Edinburgh line).

Full address for the venue:

Linlithgow Burgh Halls, The Cross, Linlithgow, West Lothian, EH49 7AH


The hall will be open from 9.15 am with tea and coffee available on arrival. The first class will commence at 10 am prompt. The running order for the classes is shown below; timings cannot be exact as we do not yet know how many entrants will be in each class. Please arrive in good time. There will be space available for tuning.


Anyone wishing to enter the Overseas class (and remember this includes people based in the UK who can't make it on the day) should record a video that will be shown and judged on the day.  Please see the Competition Rules for full details of the deadline and how to submit your entry.

The theme for the Skeely Piper Trophy will be the Tunes with a Perthshire Connection theme that we didn’t get the chance to do in 2020 as we realise that many people will have learned tunes for this and never got the chance to play them.  The guidance we issued before was that this includes tunes written by, for or about people, places and events connected with this lovely and historic area.
