The skirl of the pipes has been heard in York for over 40 years at the hands of our band since it's inauguration in 1979. The band was formed as a Piping Society, in Marygate, York, & after a while moved to Fulford, eventually occupying the Memorial Hall, Huntington, meeting every Wednesday between 7pm & 10pm.

Tuition is free and all are welcome, no experience necessary.

The band arranged and hosted a Scottish Tattoo in the Silver Ring at York Racecourse in June 2000, featuring multiple Pipe Bands, Silver Bands, Highland and Scottish country dancers.

Bands performed their own sets after the massed bands set the scene, coming together for a combined performance of Highland Cathedral.

It was a roaring success

Contact the band for details of a DVD of the event.
