Access for rehearsals

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.
