Enthusiasts from across Europe are gathering in London for the first ever International Bagpipe Day Conference.
The event aims to celebrate the diversity of bagpipes around the world.
Bagpipers Jean-Pierre Van Hees and Olle Gallmo - and conference organiser Cassandre Balosso-Bardin - showed-off a range of bagpipes on the BBC's Breakfast programme, and persuaded presenter Charlie Stayt to have a go.
