Joyful noise!

No experience necessary and no audition – just come and enjoy singing in a group and have fun and laughter with us.  We meet from 10.15 to share coffee and chat, and sing from 10.30 to 11.30.  We sing a variety of music – songs from shows and films, folk music, traditional songs of various kinds etc. and are always happy for members of the group to suggest new songs for us to try out.

Weekly sub of £3 (or £30 per term) towards professional pianist’s fee and includes the cost of refreshments.


Jazz Listening

We listen to a wide range of jazz and related music.  Sometimes group members present their own choice with or without a commentary and occasionally we have an outside speaker.  At other times everyone brings their own favourites.  No knowledge of jazz is needed to join – just enthusiasm.  We also go, from time to time, to famous Jazz venues such as Ronnie Scotts

Jazz Appreciation

We are a friendly group of jazz lovers who meet fortnightly in members’ homes.  Music played ranges from Louis Armstrong through to the swing bands of the 50s and 60s and beyond.  There is a nucleus of members who give regular sessions featuring all aspects of this music and the group is encouraged to discuss and comment on the music played.  On other days, members are invited to bring their favourite CDs.  We have the benefit of two members providing a video of our favourite bands and musicians, which has added considerably to our enjoyment.

We have space for a few more members.



We are a lively group of opera lovers.  We watch/listen to/discuss DVDs of performances from various opera houses worldwide.  The choices are decided by our members

Contact Ann Bracken – email preferred – for more information.

Always room for more members.

Playing Chamber Music

Playing Chamber Music

This keen and supportive group has been meeting for over seventeen years now. Woodwind players, cellos, viola players and violinists are very welcome to join. It is suitable for those who have learned an instrument but have never played with others, for people learning an additional instrument, or for those who learned many years ago and want to take up their instrument again.
