The Vale Royal String Orchestra brings together experienced non professional musicians. It was formed in 1993 and performs regularly at local venues. The VRSO plays primarily for the love of music and to support local charities.

In normal times there are two rehearsal periods over the season ending with a concert. Rehearsals are held at Appleton Thorn Village Hall.
