European Pipe Band Championships: Advertising and sponsorship opportunities

The European Pipe Band Championships are taking place in Aberdeen’s Duthie Park on 24 June and will attract people from all over the world to the Granite City! More than 100 pipe bands from across Europe and as far as Australia will travel to Aberdeen to participate in one of the largest piping events in the world. The day will also feature a range of fun activities that the whole family can enjoy, including a QR Dinosaur trail, canoes, and facepainting, as well as a selection of food and drink from local producers.


20,000 visitors are expected, mostly from Aberdeen and the surrounding region, and the European Pipe Band Championships, in partnership with Aberdeen City Council, is offering sponsorship and advertising opportunities to help your business reach potential customers, entertain key clients or staff, and show support for bringing high-profile events to the city.


Sponsorship packages feature a range of benefits from event branding and banners to corporate hospitality in the Winter Gardens with city dignitaries and representatives from the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association. Prices start from £2000. Click here to read about the packages on offer, and for more information contact Matthew Williams at
