The Surrey Police Band is a welcoming concert band whose primary aim is to entertain audiences while honouring the service and sacrifice made by Police personnel.

The Band was established in 2007 by a small group of Surrey Police members, with the understanding that 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.

The Band performs in a number of engagements each year, including both private and public performances. As the Band’s reputation has grown, so has the prestige of its engagements. The Band’s tri-annual concert series, now at Normandy Village Hall in Guildford, Surrey, enjoys performing to sell out audiences and attracts audience members from across the south east. The Band is 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 is honoured to be performing for the fourth year running in 2018.

Testimonials

  • Another superb evening from the Surrey Police Band, from the brass quintet welcoming us with carols, the festive selection of music, amazing raffle prizes and of course the delicious spread of homemade cakes and mulled wine. We came away full of Christmas spirit! A thoroughly fantastic evening – thank you.

  • I had to write to congratulate you and the band for a fantastic concert last night. I think it was the best one yet! The choice of music and the sound quality was brilliant and really encompassed the Christmas spirit and the musical spirit of the band.

    The new venue was great, and the cakes, as always, fabulous.

    Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
