NEW: Cotteridge Musical Misfits

Cotteridge Misfits is a band/orchestra based in Cotteridge Park welcoming adults who play any instrument to any ability. We play a varied range of music along with hosting socials, activities and events for our members.
We meet at 12pm on Mondays at The Shed in Cotteridge Park playing a wide variety of music from rock to folk to film and more.

We really do welcome anyone! Our easiest parts suit Grade 1 and our hardest parts suit the budding professional. Whether your background is in folk, rock, classical pop, we have a part for you. Best of all, every session is free of charge to everyone!
At the end of each session, we encourage members to stay and chat with fellow players in the fresh air of Cotteridge Park so that you can talk with others who play instruments in your community.

Meet at The Shed (except for Baby Stroll).  Don’t come to any of the sessions if you, or household members, have any covid symptoms and remember to stay at least 2m away from people not in your household.

All these sessions are free to attend (as we don’t want to put anyone off coming along) but they cost to put on.  If you can afford to make a regular or one-off donation it means we can keep providing free sessions for all.
