What is Duxford Saturday Workshop?

Duxford Saturday Workshop was formally established in 1974 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 (all tutors have a current DBS check).  The Workshop also owns over 200 instruments which are available for hire.

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.
