About us
The band was founded in 1949 initially as the Balmoral Pipe Band and then later adopted the name of The Victory Pipe Band and in 1979 changed its name again to reflect two things that had been constant since its inception – the tartan we wear, Wallace of course and also the fact that we are Liverpool founded and based, hence "THE LIVERPOOL CLAN WALLACE PIPE BAND"



So, what are we about? What are our goals and aspirations? Well its quite simple really, it's to promote the playing, the enjoyment and the teaching of traditional and modern Celtic music – Scottish, Irish and even Welsh on the Great Highland Bagpipes and Drums in a friendly, safe, and family-orientated learning environment and to teach our young people discipline, and respect for each other and also our predecessors. To this end in May 2015 we shall be travelling, for the fifth time, to Ypres in Belgium to pay our respects at the Menin Gate, the WW1 memorial where every night at 8:00pm since 1928 a service of remembrance is held and on 24th May 2015 the band will be leading this commemoration service. Photographs of our previous appearances in Ypres at the Menin Gate can be found on www.lastpostassociation.be
