The Surrey Police Band is a welcoming concert band whose primary aim is to entertain audiences whilst honouring the service and sacrifice made by Police personnel. The Band performs in a number of engagements each year, including both private and public performances.
The Band was established in 2007 by a small group of Surrey Police personnel with the understanding that their shift patterns would not always allow attendance at rehearsals. This flexible ethos has since attracted people from all walks of life including the police, military, and wider civilian community.
As the Band’s reputation has grown, so has the prestige of its engagements. The Band’s yearly concert series at St Barbara’s Church in Deepcut, Surrey, now enjoys performing to sell out audiences and attracts audience members from all over the south east. The Band are proud to have played on numerous bandstands, including Eastbourne Bandstand and at the opening of Aldershot Bandstand. In 2015, the Band became the first non-military band to perform in the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal Concert at the famous Lakeside Country Club and feel honoured to be performing for the third year running in 2017.
