The orchestra has been based at West Park
United Reformed Church for
concerts, rehearsals and general meetings since its formation.
In August 2014 the building
closed as a United Reformed Church and the building was put up for sale.
The owners of the building, the Northern Synod Trust of the United
Reformed Trust, allowed the orchestra to continue in residence until a
sale was effected. The orchestra chairman acted as 'caretaker' for the
building, on behalf of Synod, during this time.
The building was sold in
February 2018 to a private individual, who has allowed the orchestra to
continue meeting therein, for the time being.
An excellent relationship has
developed between the new owner and the orchestra.
The building is now known
simply as 'West Park Church'.
Thank you for
your time and we hope you enjoy your visit.
