The pipes and drums of the Scots Guards Association (Manchester Branch) formed in 1959 with founding principles to develop the performance and enjoyment of bagpipe music whilst promoting the interests of the Regiment and its Association.

Today the band is extremely active. In recent years the band has performed and recorded at the highest musical levels. Having gained our reputation as being musically and visually exciting, recognition came when invited to perform at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, and following on from the REMT, The Basel Military Tattoo Switzerland. Other recent performances include the Royal Cheshire County Show, the Scarlet & Gold Concert at The Royal Albert Hall and Beating Retreat on Horse Guards Parade. In addition to numerous concert appearances and parades, this year saw the band leading the Civic Procession to the Manchester Cenotaph Remembrance Service.

True to its roots but looking to the future the band continues to grow.
