Forthcoming Events and Catch Up Videos of Events

Covid-19 has unfortunately disrupted our live events for now however we fully intend to revert to live events as soon as it is legal and safe to do so (some 2020 events may be re-scheduled). Until then our virtual online events can be accessed so easily from any computer, tablet or mobile device. Simply click the link next to the event at the time of the virtual event, accept the prompt ‘join with video and audio’ and join in. You can mute you microphone and turn off your video if you like but we do love to see our members. Events are often recorded for later watching but not always, so we do encourage members to join us at the time of the event if possible.

Recitals and other none NDSO organised events can be found toward the bottom of this page.
