The International Guild of Town Pipers

The International Guild of Town Pipers "Waits Website" ( has developed over the years and is now quite large, containing historical records, music, records of our festivals and other activities, images, literary quotes, links and a whole lot more. This valuable resource requires significant server space and quite a lot of maintenance.

In order to assist with the cost of running the website, the Directors decided to institute a system of membership, which will confer significant benefits, although the content of the site will remain freely accessible.

The benefits of membership are:

  1. A prominent graphical link to a band's own site on the Member Bands page (at our discretion, we may provide certain non-member waits-type bands with a simple text link).
  2. Gig listings in the Events Calendar.
  3. Members' badges (a silver-finish badge featuring the IGTP logo), available at £4 each.
  4. Advance notice/priority booking at Waits Workshops and Festivals.
  5. Priority in Guild-organised events.
  6. Access to a the Guild's Facebook page.

The membership year runs from 1st January until the 31st December. The annual membership fee will be £10 per person, but with a maximum of £50 for a band with five or more members, with a student rate of £5 per member up to a maximum of £25 for a band with five or more members. The Directors of the Guild hope that you will join, thereby giving financial support to the maintenance and on-going development of the Waits Website and the other activities of the Guild including biennial workshops and festivals.
