After several months of lockdown and constraint the Napier Pipe Band is presenting its first public performance at St Paul’s Church on Sunday 2 August. Over the past few months on-line practices were used to prepare new music and refresh tunes already in the repertoire but nothing is better than our pipers and drummers together, playing their music. This performance ‘Piping & Drumming – Revived’ will showcase some of the new music plus many of the old favourites. Musical Mayhem? A Musical afternoon Soiree? Who knows what will transpire as band members gather in St Paul’s church to entertain our supporters. The event starts at 2pm with entry by gold coin donation. Light refreshments will be provided.
