Coronavirus Pandemic Update 3rd March 2021

The 9th Festival of The International Guild of Town Pipers is delayed but will take place on 13th, 14th and 15th of May 2022, in Worcester, England.

Further updates will be published here.

The International Guild of Town Pipers is a registered charity which exists to advance the education for the public benefit in early music and historically informed performances in particular but not exclusively in the music of Medieval and Renaissance Town Waits.

"Of all musical sounds that from day to day smote the ears of a sixteenth-century town resident, the deafening skirl of the shawm band in palace courtyard or market square must have been the most familiar"

Anthony Baines
