MAY 2018 ONWARDS: We are moving to our new home at Highgate International Church, 272 Archway Road N6 5AU. You can find detailed directions on the venue page. 

Playing sessions

Our sessions are usually held on the first Saturday of each month from 2.30pm-5.30pm. There are months when we have to vary the date, so do check the programme below. The room is open from 2pm and playing starts at 2.30pm. Please allow time to sign in and set up. Music will be provided, but please bring a music stand. We break for refreshments during the afternoon, organised by volunteers from the branch on a rota basis (costs are reimbursed). Anyone in the branch who is able helps set up and clear away the chairs.

Visitors and new members

We enjoy welcoming new members and visitors from other branches (or people new to SRP who want to try it out first). If you just want to show up to try it out, you do not need to let us know in advance. However, if you prefer to know that you are expected and to have a name of someone to approach on arrival, then email the Secretary at nlondonatsrpdotorgdotuk and we will ensure we look out for you.

Subscriptions 2017-18
