Pipe Bands Victoria hosted a concert in the spectacular grounds of Government House, Melbourne on 19th November 2021 at the kind invitation of The Governor of Victoria, The Honourable Linda Dessau AC and Mr Anthony Howard AM QC. 

Pipe Bands Victoria extends grateful thanks to the Governor and Mr Howard for their welcome and this amazing performance opportunity. We also thank our Chieftain, The Honourable Ted Baillieu AO and Mrs Robyn Baillieu for their attendance on the evening.
