The Highland Piping Society of Canterbury state that:

Despite the events Christchurch has faced over recent times, the Silver Chanter competitions at Labour Weekend (October 22-23) are still going ahead. The venues for the competitions have come through safe and sound, judges have been confirmed, and everything is all set for another great weekend!

There will also be a recital on the friday night by international judge Bob Worrall of Canada. More details on this to follow.

As some of you may be aware, Labour weekend this year coincides with the Rugby World Cup finals. The committee are making sure that no events will clash with any RWC games, and a venue is being organised for competitors and supporters to watch these games.

We are looking forward to a great weekend and hope you can join us!
