Forres & District Pipe Band

Community is where our event lies, and we are delighted to be opening our fantastic party with town’s very own pipe band.
Forres and District Pipe Band has a long history of playing for local community events, Highland games and local people on their special occasions. 
It has regularly performed at the European Pipe Band Championships which was held in Grant Park until 2018 and at the Highland Military Tattoo at Fort George.

Over the past few years the Pipe Band has gone through a transformation for the better. It has welcomed many new players and it has re-equipped with new instruments and uniforms.

It is leading the drive in Moray to encourage more youngsters to take up piping and drumming with a superb tuition scheme which has been rolled out to local primary schools.

Forres & District Pipe band will be a fantastic start to our family friendly music festival.
