Charity Gala Concert


11th May 2019, 7:30 p.m.

Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Gore, Kensington, London SW7 2AP

The British Police Symphony Orchestra is proud to celebrate its 30th Anniversary with a Charity Gala Concert at the Royal Albert Hall. This concert will feature over 670 performers, drawn from the police service throughout the United Kingdom, including massed choirs, pipe-bands and fanfare brass.

The Gala Concert promises to showcase the diversity of policing and the highest standards of musical talent. Presented by the orchestra’s very own PC Danny and television’s Nick Knowles.

The programme of music guarantees something for everyone, especially fans of James Bond and includes works by Sibelius, Quincy Jones, Wagner and Rick Wakeman. Over 5,000 blue flashing lights will fill the hall during his “Dance of a Thousand Lights” whilst our favourite television crime fighters will be easily identified by their themes in the world premiere of a specially commissioned suite, “A Musical Salute”. Mahler’s powerful finale to Symphony of a Thousand will provide a most fitting climax to this momentous celebration!

All proceeds will be used to support Care of Police Survivors (COPS) the National Foundation for Youth Music and the orchestra itself.

If you are supporting a performing group and wish to be seated together please state the name of the group in the comment field at the checkout.

  • Arena (£45).  This is the area where people stand for the BBC Proms concerts (the flat bit right in the middle).
  • Stalls (£49).  These seats surround the arena in a horseshoe.
  • Rausing Circle (£19-£39).  These are the seats at the very top of the hall and are split between front (generally the first 4 rows), rear (the back 3 rows) and restricted view (the seats closest to the stage, so pretty much a sideways view of the action).

Once ordered, tickets will be sent out in March 2019

Please note if you wish to book for specific seats including disabled seats you need to book through the Royal Albert Hall here.
