The Tattoo Massed Pipes & Drums
We are pleased to welcome to the Birmingham International Tattoo the Massed Pipes and Drums. All of the pipe bands actively promote Scottish Highland music through public performances across the United Kingdom and further afield.

As we commemorate 100 years since World War One it is important to remember that military pipers were killed and injured in significant numbers in the Great War, before the War Office banned the practice of playing in the trenches in 1915. However, the ban was often not observed and Canadian piper James Richardson was awarded the Victoria Cross for playing in action in 1916.

Combining for this year's performance will be members from the following bands:

- The Southern Highlanders Pipes & Drums
- The Seaforth Highlanders Pipes & Drums
- Cambridgeshire Caledonian Pipe Band
- Nene Valley Pipe Band
- Northampton Pipe Band
- Nottinghamshire Police Pipe Band
