Although rehearsals are now taking place, there are currently no planned concerts.
Access for rehearsals
We are rehearsing on Thursdays 1945-2115 in St Barnabas Church, Pitshanger Lane, W5 1QG, a Covid-secure venue, while social distancing is required. Detailed rehearsal guidelines have been issued, and members are required to agree to abide by them before attending. Spaced seats are allocated in advance for each rehearsal, and face masks are required at all times except for wind players when playing.
Buses E2 and E9 from Ealing Broadway towards Greenford pass the door, and there is parking in nearby streets, but please be considerate. How about cycling?
When we rehearse in Ealing Green Church, Ealing Green, W5 5QT, access is via the main front door, once a keyholder has opened up. We have the church from 1920 to 2220, with playing from 1935 to 2205 latest. There’s no parking at the church itself (the few spaces there are for the adjacent flats), but Grange Road is available from 1930.
The final rehearsal before a concert is often held at the concert venue; see the schedule below.
