Sixth International Bagpipe Conference and Newcastle Piping Festival

About this event

​The International Bagpipe Organisation warmly invites you to participate in the Sixth International Bagpipe Conference (IBC) to mark International Bagpipe Day 2022 (10 March 2022), a celebration of the world’s diverse bagpipes and bagpiping traditions. This event celebrates the 10th anniversary of the International Bagpipe Conference.

For 2022, the IBO has joined up with the Northumbrian Pipers' Society (NPS) and Newcastle University to host a 3-day event, combining the conference with the 3rd Newcastle Piping Festival. The combined events will start on Friday afternoon with a lunchtime concert, and end on Sunday afternoon, making use of the outstanding facilities at Newcastle University. Full details are available on our website: http://www.internationalbagpipeorganisation.com

The conference will be at Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, and will be based in the department of music in the Armstrong Building. Events and concerts will take place in the wonderful space of the King’s Hall.

Organiser International Bagpipe Organisation

Organiser of International Bagpipe Conference 2022

The IBO is a platform where bagpipe studies and music can be shared on an international level. Academic and non-academic studies of bagpipes have been carried out in many different parts of the world but the knowledge is often constrained to a geographical area. Through the organisation of a biennal International Bagpipe Conference, we bring the study of bagpipes to the world and improve international networking opportunities.
