The band welcome new members, whether you are an accomplished player or wishing to learn pipes or drums.  We pride ourselves in helping new Pipers & Drummers to reach their potential.

Currently, we are particularly looking to expand our drum corps. We require side drummers, tenors and bass. We supply the tuition, instruments, kit and camaraderie. You supply your talent and enthusiasm, and a portion of your own spare time, for practices and band engagements.

The band (Pipes and Drums) practice twice a week, with the occasional exception of bank holiday weekends and if we have been playing all weekend.

Band subs are £4 a month.

Monday Night Practice

The Pipers and Drummers meet for chanter/pad practice at the Royal British Legion, Gosport, (we have our own room) every Monday evening between 20:00 and 22:00. The Royal British Legion is located on Brockhurst Road. When travelling southbound on the A32 you will see a Labour Party sign on the right hand side of the road at the junction of Brockhurst (A32) and Norfolk Road. Turn into Norfolk Road and the RBL is on your left hand side. Park anywhere in Norfolk Road or vicinity. We meet in the room upstairs on the right hand side.

Wednesday Night Practice

The full band meet every Wednesday evening at HMS Excellent Drill Shed, Portsmouth, between 20:00 and 22:00.

Please contact the Pipe Major via the Contact Us form if you’d like to come along, as we will need to organise a pass for the Naval Base.
