Galashiels Ex-Service Pipe Band


The Ex-Service Pipe Band was founded in Galashiels in 1901 and is seen here in action marching up Scott Street during the Braw Lads Gathering 2012 proudly wearing the Royal Stewart Tartan.

The band operates an Equal Opportunities policy and actively encourages keen and dedicated people to learn to play bagpipes or drums and would also welcome people who have had these skills in the past but would like to refresh their skills.

We have a current playing membership of 24

We practice on a Wednesday nights 6.30 - 9.00 at the Gate premises, Ladhope Vale, Galashiels - everyone is welcome, either as a learner or as an experienced player.
