Kent Police Male Voice Choir
 
 
 
 

The choir was formed in 1978. It performs around twelve concerts a year, singing at fund raising charity events around the County of Kent.

 

The choir is open to serving and retired police officers, civilian staff, those with links to the service and also members of the community. It is an ambassador for Kent Police and is supported by them, although it is self-financing.

 

The Choir performs for charitable causes all over Kent and has travelled frequently to Wales, Cornwall, Suffolk, Sussex and mainland Europe. It has visited Germany as guests of the towns of Saarbrucken, Monschau, Waltrop (twinned with Herne Bay), Sonsbeck (twinned with Sandwich)  Bad Munstereifel (twinned with Ashford) and Nijmegen in the Netherlands.

 

Memorable events for the choir have been its appearances twice at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the 'Festival of Police Choirs', singing with some ten thousand choristers at Cardiff Arms Park together with Shirley Bassey and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, making an appearance on Harry Secombe's 'Highway' television programme, singing on BBC local radio for 'Children in Need' and many more.
