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. We meet at the church of St George’s and All Saints, Crayford Road (on the corner of Carleton Road), Tufnell Park, London N7 0ND. 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. Please be aware that the hall can get a little cold and dark in the winter months so you might want to wear an extra layer and bring a stand light if you have one. As at January 2017 Holloway Road has road works and local diversions – contact the branch secretary (email below) for route details.


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 want to show up, we have prepared a leaflet with all the information you may need. visitors-leaflet-for-north-london-srp (pdf)
