"The membership of the Society is made up of people who are interested in the music of the bagpipes, the playing of the instruments and also a growing number of instrument makers who produce a wide range of instruments.
Membership of the Society is open to anyone with an interest in the bagpipes and offers:
- Four Newsletters a year which include information on technical issues, recording reviews, notated music suitable for the bagpipes, band profiles, details of festivals and events where bagpipes will be present, an area for members to advertise instruments for sale and a Society shop selling society goods.
- The opportunity to attend the Society's "Blowout" weekend. This is a now annual event held at the end of May and includes workshops, concerts, dances and competitions amongst other "bagpipey" happenings.
- Periodical publications of the details of bagpipe makers and teachers, a discography and a bibliography."
