Rehearsals are held every Tuesday evening during school term-time.

We rehearse at two rehearsal venues - at Wymondham Central Hall, on Back Lane (click here for a map) and at the Regal Cinema, also known as the Wymondham & District Ex Service's Social Club (click here for a map). Please refer to the rehearsal schedule (below).

Rehearsals start at 19:45 and finish at 21:45. We generally have ten evening rehearsals before each concert. We also have an afternoon rehearsal on the day of the concert.

The schedule of rehearsals for the 2019 Spring term is available.

Annual Open Rehearsal

Some years ago, for fun, we held an open rehearsal - anyone could come along and try out the experience of playing with a symphony orchestra. It was so successful, and so many people asked us to repeat the event, that we now hold it annually. The format is simple - one or two pieces are selected by our Musical Director, and these are given the full rehearsal treatment. The evening then ends with a play-through.

Our next Open Rehearsal will take place on Tuesday 12th February, 2019. Please visit our contact us page to register your interest in attending.

The repetoire for the 2019 open rehearsal will be:

  • Hérold - Zampa Overture
  • Wagner - Prelude and Liebestod (Tristan und Isolde)
Attleborough rehearsal


Our high artistic standards don’t prevent us from being a friendly group of musicians, always willing to accept new members in our midst. If you are of Grade VII or above, or are of the equivalent standard, we’d love to hear from you. If we don’t have an immediate vacancy, we’ll happily keep your name on file.

Current vacancies:

  • principal trumpet
  • trombones
  • double bass

If you're interested in joining the orchestra, please phone Adrienne Cleary on 01953 789637 or contact us via the Contact Us page.
