The Scottish city of Inverness is an important centre for bagpipe players and lovers and every September since 1788 the city hosts the Northern Meeting, a bagpipe competition. Another important event for the city is the annual Highland Games which can trace its roots back to 1822. While centred on competitions in piping and drumming, dancing, and Scottish heavy athletics, the games also include entertainment and exhibits related to other aspects of Scottish and Gaelic culture.
Inverness is also home to two summer music festivals, Rockness and the Tartan Heart Festival, that bring a variety of different music to the town.

Located in north east England, the city of Newcastle upon Tyne (usually known as just Newcastle) is a regional capital situated north of the River Tyne. Newcastle is the county town of Northumberland and has many attractions for visitors to see and do including the famous Tyne Bridge, the Discovery Museum and St James' Park football ground, home to Newcastle United Football Club. Newcastle's cathedral dates back to the 14th and 15th centuries and is topped with a crown like structure and arches that support a lantern. Inside the cathedral and behind the high altar is one of the largest funeral brasses in England. Running along both sides of the River Tyne is the Metro that connects Newcastle with various historic attractions and the sandy beaches at Whitley Bay and Tynemouth. Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena is a purpose-built concert and exhibition venue that attracts some of the biggest names in music, as well as comedy and exciting sporting events, ice shows and family performances. Newcastle City Hall, which opened in 1927 and is smaller in size than the Metro Radio Arena, was the city’s first dedicated concert hall and continues to be a popular venue for rock, pop and comedy.
