'Formed in 1967. In our history, we have performed at many prestigious venues, including numerous civil occasions, and the honour of playing at Royal events. In common with most other bands, players perform entirely in their own free time, and are all proud to represent the Cheshire Constabulary. It's a common ( though understandable) misconception that the members of the band work within the Police Service. Whilst some do, most of our players come from all walks of life.'

‘We are a very friendly choir and are always looking to recruit new members, preferably, but not essentially, with some experience and music reading ability. There is no audition for membership, and we provide a supportive atmosphere in which to get your singing voice into shape ... Concert performances are given at our rehearsal venue, but also in churches and halls throughout the Vale Royal area of Cheshire and sometimes further afield - many in aid of charitable organisations. There are usually 6 or 7 concerts a year and during the Christmas period we also perform carols and other Christmas music at various informal and formal venues, both outdoors and indoors.‘

‘Formed in 1998 to give members the opportunity to play big band music and help keep the big band sound alive by playing to the local community. Rehearsals were held in Middlewich so the Band was named after the salt towns of Middlewich, Northwich and Nantwich and uses “Witchcraft” as its signature tune ... A traditional big band line-up of saxes, trombones, trumpets and rhythm. The emphasis is on performing high quality jazz and having fun ... If it’s good music then we’ll play it! We’ve played throughout Cheshire at a wide variety of locations, including concert halls, civic and village halls, golf and rugby clubs, marquees and open air venues.’
