Our group is a little different to the other Cobweb groups as we try to use music that is more appropriate for less experienced players. Some players come to practise playing a second instrument, and happily share advice. We usually meet at a friendly community centre in Ludworth, which is only 7 miles away from Durham. For Autumn 2021, we’re going to try a larger space in St. Cuthbert’s Church, Shadforth, Co. Durham. DH6 1LF.

One player commented:

Thank you so much for encouraging me to join Cobwebs. I don’t know whether I added anything to the performance, but the performance added something to my life.”

Our music

We play a range of music although still aspire to explore pieces from across the orchestral repertoire, sometimes using arrangements that are less demanding.

Our project to develop The Cobweb Orchestra at Ludworth in 2019 was funded by the E.ON Butterwick Moor Wind Farm Community Benefits Fund managed by County Durham Community Foundation. Thank you!
