Updated 22 September 2021:  With the further lifting of COVID restrictions, groups can continue to get together to play in person.

Updated information was sent to branch secretaries and affiliated groups in mid-April.

Branches are able to meet, but a COVID Risk Assessment should still be completed, to comply with conditions of our insurance.

Please contact your branch secretary or affiliated group leader for local arrangements.

The 2022 National Festival will be held in Ipswich, from 22-24 April. Full details of the festival programme, venue, prices and how to book can be found at the link below.

Full details of Festival 2022

The SRP conference is again on Friday afternoon, with the festival concert in the evening. We are delighted to announce that Parandrus (Daniel Swani, Grace Shih and Thomas Pickering) will be our performers.
On Saturday and Sunday there is the usual playing all day, with strands based on difficulty from easy to very hard, enabling us to cater for all players from just started to post Grade 8. Saturday evening will be an everyone-included performance of The Masque of Oberon (by kind permission of Peter Holman).

As always, there will be a range of shops, including instrument makers, repairers and music publishers.

We look forward to seeing you there!
