The Band of the Gloucestershire Constabulary was formed on March 1st 1990 and is comprised of serving and retired members of the regular Force, Specials, civilian staff and members of their families, together with a handful of musicians best described as "known to the police".
We are privileged to have performed at some of the county's most prestigious venues - Gloucester Cathedral and Highgrove House, Cheltenham Race Course, Gatcombe Park and Kingsholm, on ceremonial duty for St. George's Day and Remembrance Day, and at local events such as the Royal International Air Tattoo. Regular fixtures are Sunday afternoon "Bands in the Park" concerts throughout our beautiful county and beyond, and traditional Christmas Carols on our High Streets.
The Band is non-competing and is always open to new players and visitors - you don't have to be a police officer to join us! We practise in Cheltenham on a Thursday night
