Details

Media Center Image

Annan has a proud history of Pipe Bands and Pipe Band Contests, and this pride is shared by thousands of spectators on the first Saturday in July as the Massed Pipes and Drums march and counter-march along the ancient High Street at the conclusion of the Days ceremonies, immediately after the handing back of the Royal Burgh Standard.

The first contest held in Annan was 1950 and, over the years, the competition has grown from strength to strength. The Annan Riding of the Marches Contest and the Ayrshire, Dumfries and Galloway Branch Championship take place at Annan Academy playing field. Grade 2, 3 & 4 and Drums Majors From 2pm-4pm


There is over £4.5k of prize money to be won, as well as a fee of £150 per band for those who take part in the Carnival Procession at 13:00.

Enjoy the contests, but above all breathe in the unique atmosphere as you watch and listen to one the best sights and sounds anywhere in Scotland - Annan's unique spectacle of Massed Pipe and Drums at 6.15pm, taking pride of place on Annan High Street and rounding off yet another memorable Annan Riding of the Marches.

Chairman
