What is Duxford Saturday Workshop?

Duxford Saturday Workshop was established in 1972 with the aim of promoting the performing arts to children and adults in the local community.

It now has around 300 members, with all sessions/classes being run by volunteers.  The Workshop also owns over 200 instruments which are available for hire.

After a year of a reduced number of ensembles running, a full programme is planned for the academic year 2021-22. Members can again look forward to participation in many different ensembles, learning how to play variety of instruments and local performances.

Our groups include a beginners’ orchestra, an advanced orchestra and jazz bands, as well as a choir, ensembles for strings, recorders, guitars, ukuleles and wind instruments.

There are also two creative drama and music groups for children, a smaller group for KS1 children, and a larger music theatre group for children in KS2 & 3 from the age of 7.
