UK Amateur Orchestras

Places to play near to you

This is a jumping off point for an unofficial round-up of the huge number of non-professional orchestras and ensembles in the UK. A large number of them now have their own websites, and I get frequent e-mails from people looking for places to play and letting me know of orchestras I need to add to my list - I welcome the correspondence!

So, if you're looking for somewhere to play or somewhere to listen, select a region from the "Regions" drop-down above or click on the map and you'll be there...

For a more detailed map, with individual ensembles located, be sure to visited the "MAP" link above.
