The Nottinghamshire Police Band was first formed in 1896 and is today staffed by serving Police Officers, retired Police personnel and musicians from many other walks of life. Currently, there are 54 musicians with occupations ranging from a Tax Inspectors to a Bus Drivers, from a School Teacher to a Veterinary Nurse. It really is a community Band open to musicians from all walks of life and of a good standard of playing.

The Band meets on Wednesday evenings at the National Geological Survey, Nicker Hill Keyworth where we enjoy the facilities of the De La Besh Hall in which to rehearse. We have a relatively small commitment to "in house" engagements within the force where we play at a number of formal occasions throughout the year. Other than that, we are very much out in the community playing at various locations for charity. 

The Band in recent months has raised money for a variety of Charities, including Age Concern, the Air Ambulance, the Pet Bereavement Counseling Service and Barnados to name but a few.
