UK Amateur Orchestras

Places to play near to you

This is an informal listing of the huge number of non-professional orchestras and ensembles in the UK. Most of them have their own websites and/or Facebook pages, so there is summary information here along with links to their more detailed information. 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...
