We are a very active band of over 30 members, consisting of pipers, drummers, and highland dancers based on the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney. New members are always welcome, be they new or experienced players. So if you are interested, please get in contact.
Tuition is available for the pipes & drums; Highland dancing is also taught. We are open to anyone of any age with current learners & members ranging in age from 9 to over 60.
The band tartan is the Military Gordon (as worn by the Gordon Highlanders); the rest of the uniform depending on the occasion.
Manly Warringah Pipe Band has been playing for nearly 70 yrs now (we were founded in 1949), going from strength to strength, fuelled by the enjoyment of playing amongst a friendly, social group of people with a common passion.
The last few years have been particularly exciting as the band participated in the Massed Pipes and Drums at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in Scotland in 2012 and 2015, in Sydney in 2010 and Melbourne in 2016, at the Basel Tattoo in 2017, and we have been invited to perform again in Edinburgh in 2018.
Leading the band is Drum Major Barry Nicholas and Pipe Major Nick Roelvink.
