Pulham Orchestra is a vibrant amateur community orchestra
based in Pulham Market, Norfolk
The Pulham Orchestra is a lively amateur orchestra which rehearses at The Memorial Hall in the village of Pulham Market (click here for map), on the borders of Norfolk and Suffolk.
The orchestra is conducted by its co-founder Margery Baker, and is open to all local players. No audition is required to join, although you do need some sight-reading ability. Occasionally, we may ask players to join a waiting list as some orchestral sections are full.
The orchestra gives three or four concerts a year, and programmes cover a wide range of classical music.
We also run very successful "Come and Play Days" once or twice a year.
