    About the band..!!
    They are a friendly brass band based at the Kent Police Headquarters, Maidstone, Kent.

    The band is self funding and consists of up to 35 musicians from all over Kent and Sussex. Our membership is made up of serving and retired police officers, as well as a large number of civilian players.

    The band is fortunate to include a corps of drums who take an active part at our concerts and lead our marching band . We also have a 6 piece fanfare trumpet team to complete our line up.

    They have a vast repertoire ranges from marches and overtures, classical arrangements to selections from popular shows, films and even swing and pop and rock numbers. We are fortunate to have a large following at our concerts in and around Kent, both indoor and at various bandstand and other outdoor engagements.

    Our musical director is John Groves.

    History

    The Kent Police Band was formed after three colleagues expressed an interest in getting a brass band together. The first rehearsal involved over 40 enthusiastic officers under the direction of Alan Collins, the then musical director of the Medway Towns Band.

    Originally the band was composed only of police officers, but later extended membership to civilian colleagues and members of the public.

    The band has been honoured to play in the presence of various members of the Royal Family and has even played in the garden of 10 Downing Street representing Kent Police at the Police National Bravery Awards, (whilst a full cabinet meeting was taking place nearby !)

    They have been proud to carry both the association with Kent and Kent Police whilst performing in England and various foreign trips over the years which have included America, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Belgium & France.

    Some of the particular highlights for the band over the past few years have included:

    Playing at the invitation of Michael Winner at the unveiling of the National Police Memorial on the corner of Horseguards Parade and the Mall in London in the presence of the Queen and the Prime Minister.

    A day trip to Brussels to perform a marching display at a music festival

    Moving performances at the Thiepval World War I Memorial, France on remembrance day for the Somme branch of the British Legion.

    Representing the UK at music festivals in Denmark & Norway

    Playing in Canterbury Cathedral to commemorate 150 years of Kent Police

    Tonbridge Castle
