HAMPSHIRE POLICE MALE VOICE CHOIR
(Registered Charity 1139635)

In 1940 Portsmouth received intense air-raids and Portsmouth City Police, together with wartime colleagues, spent many hours on stand-by. To raise spirits, officers began to sing together, and a choir was formed. Portsmouth City Police Choir was in demand to lift morale and for fund-raising activities in the battered city. Concerts were given with the Band of the Royal Marines and invitations to broadcast soon followed.

After amalgamation of police forces in 1967 it became the Hampshire Police Male Voice Choir, now with around 60 members, current and retired officers and members of the Community and a Music Team consisting of Musical Director Geoffrey Porter with accompanists Nigel Smith & Siân Bibby-Hsia.

The Choir’s charitable activities have raised many thousands of pounds for local and national Organisations, also promoting Hampshire Constabulary’s Crime Prevention, Community Safety and Trading Standards messages.

The Choir has sung in many prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall, the former Cardiff Arms Park, Hyde Park, many cathedrals and recently in Cornwall & York as well as abroad in Germany, Malta, Croatia, France and Belgium where it had the privilege to sing in the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate and lay a wreath.
