Police Week is set to take to the steps of City Hall this evening with an hour of music and dance.

The Halton Regional Police Pipes and Drums from Ontario, Canada, are set to join with the Bermuda Islands Pipe Band and Highland Dancers for a performance starting at 6.30pm.

The Canadian band, who are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year, have come to the island as part of Police Week 2017.

A police spokesman said: “Both bands are grateful to the Corporation of Hamilton for the use of their venue. Please come and enjoy the display of piping, drumming and Highland dancing.”

While Police Week will bring music to Hamilton, the Bermuda Police Service warned that another event today may cause loud noises in the Prospect area.

Between 10am and 3pm, the BPS are hosting Display Day for schoolchildren and other members of the public at Police Field.

The spokesman said: “Police vehicles are on display and as part of a series of live demonstrations, loud noises will be heard at times.

“We appreciate the understanding of the public as well as area residents and apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
