Practices & Performances Cancelled

Due to the current restrictions imposed because of the COVID-19 virus, until further notice all Kettle Bridge Concertinas practice sessions and performances have been cancelled.

However, thanks to the wonder of Zoom, we are managing to keep in touch with each other.

One of our Zoom get-togethers

We have two regular sessions

  • Alternate Sundays at 11:00am. An informal chat for members. No playing is involved!
  • Every Monday at 3:00pm. A playing session led by Sue. This is aimed at beginners but all are welcome.
If you are interested in joining in with either of these, just get in touch with our secretary via our Contact Page.
