Our October 2020 and October 2021 residential weekends at Tulliallan have been cancelled due to the pandemic. We are hoping to return to Tulliallan in April 2022.
Normally, our October weekend takes place between a Friday evening until Sunday afternoon at the Tulliallan Police College. At the weekend we play through lots of new music and just generally having a lot of fun together. It’s a great social occasion and an excellent opportunity for new players to get to know the orchestra better. It’s a very relaxed atmosphere and people who do not join the orchestra for the year are also welcome to just enjoy the SRO for the weekend. We hope to see you there!
