WIN tickets to the Festival of Police Music; GO2.

THE Evening Telegraph has teamed up with the NIA, Birmingham to offer five lucky readers a pair of tickets each to see the Festival of Police Music 2000 on Saturday, May 6.

Over 1,000 police officers and civilian support staff from across the country will unite to perform the first concert of its kind, headed by the British Police Symphony Orchestra.

Founded by Birmingham PC Alex Roe, the British Police Symphony Orchestra was formed for a one-off concert. Ten years later it has grown into one of the best non-professional orchestras in the UK, benefiting charities such as the Police Departments Trust and the Royal Ulster Constabulary Widows and Orphans Fund.

Pipe bands from Scotland and England, the world famous band of the Royal Constabulary, a steel ban from Norfolk and massed police choirs from across the UK will take part in the Festival of Police Music at the NIA, as well as the West Midlands Male Voice Choir, Police Band and Pipe Band.

The show will culminate with a truly explosive Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture with all performers taking part.

Tickets are still available from the NIA box office on 0121 780 4444, priced pounds 10.50- pounds 16.50 (plus booking fee).


For your chance to win a pair of tickets to see the Festival of Police Music 2000 just answer the following simple question:
