Learn to play

Nelson Mandela Artillery is always looking for new members to join our Pipe Band. If you have an interest in bagpipes or Drums and want to be a part of an exciting group please contact us. We have members from all walks of life and we tutor all aspects in the pipe band. Have you possibly matriculated and come to Study in Cape Town and looking for a pipe band – please pop Grant Scheffel a line and he will chat with you.

The band plays in the local gatherings and we also play for a number of fun events like weddings and wine tastings and the likes. We are also the ceremonial pipe Band for the Nelson Mandela Artillery Regiment and our unit is the ceremonial guns all parades. Please contact us for more information as we are a friendly bunch and love pipe bands! A number of our members are multi instrumental and play other instruments too – so there is much fun. With our two venues in Goodwood and the Castle of Good Hope in Cape Town we have the best of all worlds.
