We are now inviting bookings for the season October 2020 to June 2021

If you wish to perform for us, please read the following notes first and check the events calendar. Dates marked TBC are probably still available. We are not taking bookings beyond June 2021. Once the season is fully booked, no further performances will be arranged and no waiting list will be held.

Notes for Performers
  • The Society does not pay fees to performers.

  • We will reimburse reasonable direct expenses for which receipts can be produced.

  • The Society can arrange overnight accommodation if so requested.

  • Please fill in and return the Accommodation Request form as early as possible if you require accommodation or reimbursement.

  • Expenses, including any accommodation costs, are capped at £150 per performer.

  • All recitals begin at 7:30pm. On the evening of the performance, artists are responsible for providing printed programmes and/or verbal introductions.

  • The Society will advertise the concerts and provide an audience. Please advise the Society of the full programme roughly 2 months ahead of the concert, or sooner if possible, so it can be publicised and to help us avoid any duplication of repertoire.

  • The programme should consist of a first half of about 40 minutes and a slightly shorter second half (approx. 30 minutes). There will normally be an interval of around 20 minutes during which refreshments are provided for artists and audience. Please make sure you time your programme before publishing it. In total it ought not to exceed 70-75 minutes, and this includes any verbal introductions you choose to make. If a programme seems likely to be too long, the Society may ask for it to be amended accordingly.

  • Please contact the bookings officer to arrange access for pre-concert rehearsal.

Having read the above terms, if you would like to perform for us please contact the Programme Organiser to arrange a date.
