The Chantry Bagpipe Museum follows the development of bagpipes around the world . The Museum sells a wide range of music for the Northumbrian pipes and also an excellent range of CDs and cassettes. It is also the venue for some important bagpipe events including the Northumbrian Pipers’ Society annual competitions which are a key feature of the Northumberland Traditional Music Festival. The Museum also holds a rare collection of tune books, formerly belonging to local pipers, as well as original editions of printed tunebooks.
