With pipe band and drum majors competing across a number of grades in four arenas there will be an stunning spectacle of colour as well as amazing playing!
The majority of the bands come from Scotland but we are delighted to welcome bands from all over the world as well as from other parts of the United Kingdom. In the 5 years that Piping At Forres has taken place we have had bands from as far away as Australia and Oman as well as bands from other European countries such as Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the Republic of Ireland. We hope to see both old friends and new faces in the 2018 band lineup.
There is a wide variety of other entertainments to suit all ages and interests, with over a hundred stalls, offering a wide selection of some of the best produce and craft of the local area.
There are a number of activities for you to participate in, including trying your hand at the pipes and / or drums, exploring the science around solar power, or even making a Tattie Scone. Other activities including a funfair, bouncy castle and other inflatables.
The entire event area within Grant Park will be licensed allowing adult spectators to enjoy a relaxed drink whilst watching the bands.
