band information

The Committee of the Aberdeen Highland Games would like to welcome the bands who are participating in this year’s games.

The Games always attracts a great line up of pipe bands who whilst they are competing for the various trophies, they have come for a great day out and to enjoy the pleasantries  of the event.

There will be a competition for Drum Majors with two trophies being struck, for the Best Drum Major on the Day both Senior and Junior. These trophies have been donated by the Maitland Pipe Band and for this the Committee is most grateful.

The following points need to be considered,

  • The Drum Majors will be judged as part of their band display.
  • Nominations for the Drum Majors competition need to be received prior to the event.

Please read the attached Rules and Regulations in relation to the Drum Major’s Competition and view the attached adjudication sheet.

For further detail for Pipe Bands, please contact the Bands Coordinator.

Scheduling information will be made available here when ready.
