The City of Edindburgh Police Pipe Band was formed about 1890, originally wearing the "Red Ross" Tartan. Since 1948, however, the Band has worn the "Prince Charles Edward Stuart" tartan.
The World Pipe Band Championships is a pipe band competition held in Scotland. For competitive bands, the title of World Champion is highly coveted, and this event is seen as the culmination of a year's worth of preparation, rehearsal and practice. Until 2013, the entirety of the World Championships has taken place on one day in August, the current venue being Glasgow Green.
The band was not a pipe band at this time, but did however contain pipers. The earliest known performance by the band was held on 2 June 1883 when the "Edinburgh City Police Pipers" played a number of sets at Waverly Market.
