The orchestra year starts in September and matches approximately the three academic terms.
We try to schedule 10 rehearsals per term leading - under normal circumstances - to a public concert performed in one of a number of local venues at the end of each term. For details of these venues, see the Venues Map Page.
We usually don’t meet during school half term week and the dates for our meetings are posted on the Dates page in this website. We generally meet on Saturday mornings between 09:30 and 11:30 (though this can be subject to change) - and presently we are meeting (when permitted to do so) in a Covid Secure environment in the Weald Hall in Uckfield Civic Centre which is large enough to accommodate the orchestra with the correct social distancing.
All other things being equal, this arrangement will restart in December and continue into the Spring Term 2021 and will be reviewed by the committee in due course. As at the time of writing the National Lockdown may mean the suspension of activity but we keep our fingers crossed!
