This Take Part activity is now pending confirmation until further notice as we attempt to arrange an alternative date with facilitators. We’d like to get Summer term started 05.05.20 and as soon as there is further information available we will contact bookers directly.

Please wait for us to contact you as we deal with a high volume of requests at this time. Thank you for your support and understanding.

Do you have an instrument stashed in the loft or the shed? Did you love playing at school or college? Get it out, dust it off, and join our concert orchestra for beginners and returners and rediscover the joy of playing! The ensemble plays a mixture of classical, popular, show and film music.

If you are a new member please book your ticket here or via our box office and then email to tell us which instrument you play –

All musicians require a ticket as space is limited. We strongly advise booking your tickets to this activity in advance. Places are limited and we do not accept reservations, so arriving on the day may result in disappointment. Booking in advance also helps our workshop leaders to prepare your session and plan for any additional access needs you may have ahead of time.
