The City Of Nelson Highland Pipe Band currently has 11 pipers, a bass, 2 tenors, 4 snares, and a number of learner pipers and snare drummers.
Throughout the year we attended a number of local events and competitions around New Zealand. We do the local ANZAC day, Rose Day, Isel In Bloom, Masked Parade, market days and Santa Parades. Nationally we attend July Day in Nelson, Victoria Square Day in Christchurch, Canterbury Centre Contest, and the NZ Pipe Band Championships each year.
City Of Nelson Pipe Band is a busy, energetic, participatory, fun, yet competitive band and always welcomes new players and people to come and listen.
Our band room is located at the Sun City Darts Club Hall in Sovereign Street, Nelson, New Zealand. We practise from about 7pm to 9pm on a Monday night and the occasional Thursdays leading up to competitions.
