Our History

In the late 1940s a few police officers and their wives started a group called “The New Court Players” and performed small plays in an old wooden hut near Police Headquarters, Springfield, Chelmsford, Essex.

Several of the original members were moved from Headquarters and this, together with retirements, meant the members sadly depleted. However, a small number remained and the decision was taken to perform a musical and The New Court Players became The Police Headquarters Musical Society. Our first musical, Calamity Jane was performed in 1966 in the newly constructed Assembly Hall at Headquarters. Back in the 1980s the society was renamed The Essex Police Musical Society, since then the Society has produced two shows each year at the Assembly Hall and after over fifty years we are still going strong.

EPMS has been going now for over five decades and we have enjoyed a very gratifying rise in membership over the last few years. Although it is hard work and time consuming, it’s always enjoyable and a hugely compelling hobby.
