The magnificent sound of pipes and drums makes its way to Stormont Estate as Belfast hosts the UK Pipe Band Championships.

These championships allow local pipers, dancers and drummers to compete with participants from across the UK, Ireland and further afield.
The competition will feature up to 100 bands from varying competition grades ranging from juvenile right up to Grade One along with drum majors and highland dancers who will all be hoping to be crowned UK champions.
Between competitions there'll be a number of food, drink and tartan stalls and fun activities for young and old to enjoy, or simply pack up the picnic blanket, come along and enjoy the music.
This event is free for all.
