Castle Hill RSL Pipe Band
In 2000 the Epping and District Scottish Society Pipe Band commenced an enduring association with the Castle Hill RSL Club and became the Castle Hill RSL Pipe Band. The band is supported by the Castle Hill RSL Club in its endeavours to provide a safe and healthy form of recreation for both young and older people in the community.
Castle Hill RSL Pipe Band is an integral part of Anzac Day ceremonies on Anzac Day and Remembrance Sunday. The band parades every Anzac Day in support of all service personnel from all conflicts in which Australia has been engaged.
In addition, the Band performs at weddings, birthday parties, street marches and festivals.
Active in the piping and drumming community
A large amount of our members are involved in running events across NSW, either as organises, helpers or contest supervisors. Several members hold positions on association councils at state and national level.

Several senior players in the band teach and run a development band at James Ruse Agricultural High School. This was an initiative created from scratch by our PM Nick.T.

The Epping and District Scottish Society Pipe Band was formed in 1932 as the pipe band of the Epping and District Scottish Society. The aim of the Band was to promote Scottish music and has been providing a public service since then.
The band retains its links with the Epping and District Scottish Society, including performing at its monthly social.
The Band’s Tartan is Cameron of Erracht.
