Who are we? The co-ordinating body for Pipe Bands in Queensland. Our job is to support existing Bands, help raise the standard of playing and performance and look for ways to grow the Pipe Band movement.
Contact us for Bands or Solo Players for Weddings, Funerals, Parties, Corporate Functions. We can put you in touch with players and bands all over Australia.
Our Website has links to Bands, Scottish Shops, local Scottish Groups and other organisations throughout the Piping and Pipe Band world. We also publicise local social events of a Scottish character.
Certificates: Sit for the Certificates of the Australian Pipe Band College in Piping, Drumming, Dress and Drill or Rules and Administration. We hold workshops to help you achieve the standards needed for the certificates. - these can be arranged at times and places to suit those wanting to attend. Contact the Secretary for more information.
QPBA House: We occupy a building in the grounds of the “Old Museum” near the Exhibition Ground in Brisbane. The building is suitable for meetings and Band practices and is available for a nominal charge. It is also used for Association meetings and College activities
Events: We regulate Pipe Band Contests and solo Piping and Drumming Contests in Queensland. We also conduct some of these contests ourselves. We can run a Contest contained within a larger event (such as a local festival). We can also supply massed pipe bands and help co-ordinate kindred organisations such as Scottish dancers for an event organiser. Contact the Secretary for more details.
