There are a number of areas within the branch where more-or-less regular meetings or workshops occur (these may be monthly, quarterly, or just a couple of times a year). The aim is to provide events which local members can attend without too much travel, since the branch does cover a large area. We generally play ensemble music at these events, of elementary-intermediate standard.
These events usually take place on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, or occasionally all day Saturday or Sunday.
If the meeting takes place in a local hall, there will generally be a small charge to contribute towards the hire of the hall. There may also be an additional charge for some workshops.
Currently there are meetings in
- Hampshire (Littleton, near Winchester) – monthly
- Suffolk (Sudbury) – on an occasional basis
- Norfolk (Norwich) – monthly
- London SE23 – monthly
- Hertfordshire (Chorleywood) – monthly
- North Hertfordshire (near Hitchin) – new group starting up
- Surrey (West Horsley) – every two months
For more details see the individual pages for these areas.
These meetings are open to non-members, but if you would like to attend on a regular basis you would be expected to join the branch.
