The Charnwood Orchestra

The Orchestra usually performs five concerts a year in Leicestershire in January, March, June, September and November and tours to chosen cities of the UK every three years in May. The 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 seasons were severely truncated though, due to the restrictions resulting from COVID-19.

With rehearsals having started up again in September 2021, the four concerts currently planned in the 2021/2022 season are outlined below and the concert brochure is available to download here.

Tickets for the concerts are available on the door, or to avoid disappointment (our Viennese concert usually is a sell out) you can buy your tickets in advance using one of the methods below:

  • From a member of the Orchestra in person.
  • Buy your tickets online below via Paypal.
  • Contact for more ways to purchase tickets.

  • Tickets purchased in advance can be collected on the door at the concert. Advance sales will be available until the Thursday before each concert.
