Welcome to Nottinghamshire Police Band's website
The Nottinghamshire Police Band is considered to be one of the finest musical organisations of its kind. Staffed by volunteer musicians from all walks of life, including serving Police Officers, the band is committed to supporting Nottinghamshire Police and serving the community.
The band is busy throughout the whole year supporting Nottinghamshire Police at celebration events such as commendation and medal presentation ceremonies, and plays a leading role in the annual Joint Emergency Services Carol Service at Southwell Minster. Musical support is also provided for more sombre occasions including in recent years an Officer's death in service funeral and the unveiling of Ged Walker's memorial in Bulwell.
The charities supported by the Nottinghamshire Police Band have included the National Police Aid Convoy, Help for Heroes, The Royal British Legion and the Scouts among others.
Rehearsals take place each Wednesday evening between 7.30pm and 9.30pm. We have recently been given access to a new rehearsal space at the Nottinghamshire Police Headquarters, Sherwood Lodge, Arnold, NG5 8PP, about 5 miles south of Mansfield, & 3 miles north of Nottingham (Arnold). When travelling north on Mansfield Road, right into Burnt Stump Hill, and then right again for the Police Headquarters. HQ is next to the Park Hospital. The band has a current establishment of around 40 and is managed by a team of experienced band members.
Members will tell you the band is a great organisation to be part of. We work extremely hard, have a high level of commitment and a great deal of fun. Please have a look around the rest of our website and our Facebook page and do get in touch. We'd love to hear from you!
