Encore at the World Pipe Band Championships

12/09/2014
Encore events team take part in their 24th World Pipe Band Championships
 
Straight off the back of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, the hard work for Cordia never stopped as the Encore events team delivered the yearly provision for 50,000 performers, supporters, judges and team officials for the Annual World Pipe Band Championships held at Glasgow Green.
 
The “Worlds” (as it is now fondly referred to) was first hosted by Glasgow in 1930 and, in the following 84 years, has been held in Bellahouston Park, Scotstoun Showground and Glasgow Green.
 
Our Encore events team can claim involvement for the past 24 years with our staff volunteering to work at the event due to the fantastic atmosphere and camaraderie experienced at the event.
 
120 staff and managers from across Encore, finance, and health and food safety joined forces under Encore’s event manager, Guida Torretti.
 
During the two day event in August, over 30,000 spectators made their way through 250 kegs of lager, beer and cider, as well as Irn Bru ice lollies, wine and fine ales.
 
A huge thank you and well done to all of our staff who worked at this hugely successful event.
