Petersfield Orchestra, registered charity no. 267620, is an amateur symphony orchestra. Its members are mainly adults. However from time to time, young people (under the age of 16 years) become involved in the activities of the Orchestra, usually as players. The Orchestra welcomes and actively encourages the involvement of such young people, to foster their musical development and as a way of encouraging future membership. However we need to ensure their safety and well-being while they are in our care.
