Northumbrian Pipers' Society Home

Welcome to the website of the Northumbrian Pipers' Society. The NPS was established in 1928 to promote the indigenous bagpipes of the North-East of England - the Northumbrian Smallpipes and the Half-long or Border pipes. Since then these instruments have achieved great popularity, both in their home region and around the world. Today's Society continues to encourage the playing, making, study and development of the Northumbrian pipes and their music. On this site you can find information on the Pipes, the Music and the Society. We have listings of not only Society events, but many other piping events on around the world. See our What's On section for Local Groups, Sessions, Concerts and Workshops.
