The Vancouver Police Pipe Band has spent the last 100 years entertaining people around the globe, while at the same time acting as ambassadors for their country, province and city. As the world’s oldest, continuous serving police pipe band and official band of the City of Vancouver, with a regional population in excess of 2.5 million people, they are continually called upon to play for charity and community events, visiting royalty, heads of state and celebrities.
In January 2014, the Mayor awarded Vancouver’s highest honour to the men and women of the Band – the Freedom of the City Award. The Band’s centenary peaked in June of 2014 when they travelled to England to play for the changing of the guard, at both Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. This was the first time in the 300 years history of the iconic, internationally recognized ceremony that a non–military band was granted the honour.

With Micaela's performance last week, it was noted that this is the first time in the pipe band's 104 year history that we have ever had a father and daughter together in the the band. Here is Micaela and Lorne. pic.twitter.com/OljxAqv2db— VanPolicePipeBand (@VPDPipeBand) May 15, 2018
With the recent nice weather in Vancouver, we decided to take it outside. Here we are putting our music set for the 2018 #baseltattoo to some marching drill. It's coming along very nicely. The Basel Tattoo runs from July 20 - 28.https://t.co/IQP9Bm3S10 … pic.twitter.com/OKQ84OX48R— VanPolicePipeBand (@VPDPipeBand) May 15, 2018
