ORPHEUS RECORDER BOUTIQUE 2021 has been postponed

Due to the uncertainly of what the months ahead hold in relation to health, safety and travel, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the next Orpheus Recorder Boutique (originally scheduled for Jan 2021)  until January 2022. 

However, we will offer many other activities throughout 2020 and 2021 that you might like to engage with, so don’t think you have been forgotten! We will be back for a big event in January 2022, so keep the dates 9-14th January free.
