on behalf of Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships
The Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships (SSPBC) has hit the headlines across the country as school pupils gear up for the world’s largest school piping competition in March.
Currently in its third year, the Championships will see pupils compete in seven categories, meaning that bands can enter the category best suited to their skill set and experience.
David Johnston, SSPBC Committee Chairman, said: “The talent displayed by those who have entered the competition in the past has been absolutely outstanding and I’m delighted to see the prospect of more new young musicians taking part this year.”
This year’s competition will include a ‘Freestyle’ category which encourages pipers and drummers to perform modern and up-to-date songs alongside their other musical instruments played by their classmates.
Papers from all around Scotland have been featuring the story championing their local schools thanks to the Award-winning PR agency Holyrood Partnership in Edinburgh.
It has been featured in as many as 13 regional papers including The Courier, The Evening Express, The Press and Journal, The Edinburgh Evening News, East Lothian News, The Mearns Leader and The Strathearn Herald to name a few.
Holyrood Partnership has been working with The Championships over the last few years to share their success stories with national and local press. This year’s campaign has already seen The Championships make it into several popular titles, including The Times and The Scotsman.
