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 country. 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

  • What a wonderful concert: varied programme, brilliant solo performances, audience participation, tasty cakes (as always), fundraising celebration and Jody playing a typewriter! You can’t pack much more fun into an evening’s entertainment, thank you. See you at Christmas.

  • It was our first time seeing the Surrey Police Band and WOW! What an outstanding performance! The arrangements, the musical talent and the sheer passion was there in bucket loads. We travelled down from North Wales and intend to return to see the Band as soon as we can. Thank you for a truly wonderful evening.

  • Attended the Stoughton Commemoration today and must thank your bugler for what was one of the most poignant Last Post and Reveille we’ve ever heard. And my OH has served in the military for 25+ years, so has heard a few!
