Upcoming Events & Dates For Your Diary


Open Rehearsals

Most groups hold open rehearsals once a term as a chance for new people to come along and try out a group. It’s a chance to see what happens and have a go on a day when there might be other new people too, however if you would like to come along on another date, please email and we will help to arrange a trial.

The open rehearsals for Spring Term will be taking place between 6th-17th January. Please see the individual group pages for more information closer to the time.
