Towie & District Pipe Band began life in 1978 as the Towie Piping Group. The Piping Group aimed to provide instruction and promote interest in piping for all members in the local community. The enthusiasm of those initial pipers led to invites to play at local conerts etc.

2011 a young Towie band entered local competitions at Aberdeen,Turriff and Mintlaw Aden park where we won prizes  in our first year. The band from there grew and gained experience and entered major championships.

2013 saw the band win 4th place at the European championships and 1st drum corp in 4B.

2014 saw the band win 1st and 2nd prizes at all local contests and do very well in Major championships.

Towie Pipe Band welcome anybody interested in learning pipes or drums and also experienced players of any age.
