The Nottinghamshire Police Pipe Band (NPPB) is based in Nottingham in the East Midlands of England. Whilst bearing the name and informal support of the Nottinghamshire Police, and the support of the Chief Constable in particular, the Pipe Band is actually composed mainly of civilians (see About section for more information). That said, the band is proud to act as a public relations unit for the Nottinghamshire Police whenever possible upon their request.

We are currently Grade 4B within the structure of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association.

The band is available for hire, everything from a full band spectacle to a solo piper for weddings, funerals or other private functions, please refer to the contact page to inquire about hiring the band.

“The Notts Police Pipe Band is great! They wowed everybody with their gutsy piping, eclectic repertoire and hairy legs”

“Your performance was a true delight. The tunes, the sporans, and the whisky drinking.”

“The Notts Police Pipe Band is the dog's nads”

“The Notts Police Pipe Band is one of those bands about whom you think, 'they are so good that they surely can't possibly get any better.' And it's true, they can't.”

Sporans Monthly
“Thank you Notts Police Pipe Band for another great show last night at Sedgefield. As ever you gave it your all and the kilts were a revelation. Got the video on permanent replay.”
