The Championships take place annually and started 16 years ago with only a handful of bands and a fairly large mountain to climb to get things up and running. It is now considered as one of the flagship events in the Scottish Borders.

The event now attracts over 40 performances through grades novice juvenile to grade 2, Drum Majors and a dancing contest which attracts dancers (including world champions) from all over.

It's a family day out with trade stands, funfair, food and refreshments. The main shops of Melrose a mere 100 yards away.
