When is it open?

They offer activities on Saturday mornings and are open for 30 weeks per academic year:

  • autumn term: 16 September to 2 December 2017
  • spring term: 6 January 2018 to 24 March 2018 
  • summer term: 21 April to 14 July 2018 

We schedule times around the academic year, but anyone can use a centre - they're open to people of all ages and standards, from beginner upwards, with a wide range of opportunities to develop musicianship and playing skills. For most people, music has its greatest impact when played with others.
