Band of the Irish Guards

The Band is one of 5 bands in the Foot Guards Regiments within the Household Division. The Band's main role is to assist the regiments guarding the monarch by providing musical support for ceremonial duties.

Over the years the Band has toured extensively, including a visit to Japan in 1972, where it was accorded the honour of being the first foreign band ever to play in the Imperial Palace in the presence of the Empress and the two Crown Princesses. 

The Band is located at Wellington Barracks in London and provides the musical support for all major ceremonial events in London and at Windsor.
