Entertaining Queenslanders for 50 years
If you’ve ever seen a great pipe band perform, you know just how soul stirring the event can be. The powerful presence of a pipe band creates a magical and emotive experience.
Celebrating their 50th anniversary, the Queensland Police Pipes & Drums (QPPD) are creating an opportunity to hear, feel and see their performance at a gala fundraising concert on 27 June 2008.
Brisbane City Hall will open its doors on 27 June for a 2pm matinee and 7.30pm evening performance. All are welcome.
Tickets cost $25 (concession & children $20) with money raised going to Police Legacy, Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation, Mater Children’s Hospital and the Police Pipes & Drums Supporters Association.
The band boasts national and international fame with performances at the Royal Tournament, the Colchester Searchlight Tattoo, the world famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo, the inaugural Brisbane International Festival and the Brisbane and Adelaide International Tattoos.
A commemorative dinner on 23 August at City Hall will also be held to celebrate this momentous occasion.
