Join Us

We are always on the lookout for new members; whether you're experienced or a complete novice you'll be welcome in our band.  If you've never played before or need tuition, we'll commit to teaching you, totally free of charge.  All we need from you, is your commitment in return to attend practices, and to spend time practising on your own.  The only payment we'll ask of you is a very small fixed weekly contribution which goes towards hiring the hall where we practice, and to maintaining the band and its equipment.
What you can expect as a member
You might be wondering what you can expect as a member.  Well, it’s fun, hard work, satisfying…
We’ll help you to learn and grow as a player.  If you commit to us, then we’ll commit to you.  We want you to be comfortable, to want to turn up week-after-week, year-after-year, like our original founders did; like I’ve done; and many of the members you'll get to meet. 
 Tell us what you want to achieve and we will support you in any way we can.  Likewise, if you’re at all unhappy – tell us why.  We want you as a recognisable member of our family, not just some distant cousin who emigrated to Australia, and hasn’t been seen since...
Where & When?
We practice every Thursday evening 7.30-9.30 at The Verney Institute, 13 Newboundmill Lane, Pleasley, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, NG19 7PL.
Whether Pipes or Drums, or even both,  are your interest, or you simply want to check us out contact Stuart Gullen on 01623 650359, or you can use the "contact us" page to drop us an email.
Visitors are always welcome whether you are looking to join the band, are looking to book the band or just want to hear the pipes
