WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
We are Brighton’s very own mandolin orchestra currently with around 25 players from the City and surrounding areas. The group, which consists of instruments of the mandolin family plus guitars and basses, was founded in 1995 with the goal of reviving the tradition of mandolin orchestras, which were hugely popular in the UK up until the 1930s. However, we now have a very modern approach to repertoire and love to play new compositions and old. Please browse our website to find out more about us. New members are always very welcome.
St Luke’s Music and Wine

The Fretful Federation Mandolin Orchestra will perform The other ocean, a new composition by Esmeralda Conde Ruiz with evocative film archive material provided by Screen Archive South East. An invitation to think, feel and remember. Plus the usual eclectic and entertaining selection of mandolin orchestra material. A chance to see and hear this very exciting and unusual presentation of music and film which was written for the Making Music Adopt a Composer project.
