• 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 required.

  • All recitals begin at 7:30pm.

  • The Society will advertise the concerts and provide an audience. The Venue seats 50 people.

  • Please advise the Society of the full programme roughly 2 months ahead of the concert, or sooner if possible, so it can be publicised on our website and to avoid duplication of repertoire. 

  • On the evening of the performance, artists are responsible for providing printed programmes and/or verbal introductions.

  • The programme should consist of a first half of about 40 minutes and a slightly shorter second half (approx. 30 minutes).

  • The interval will be around 20 minutes and refreshments will be provided for artists and audience.

  • Private changing facilities are provided.

  • All performers are warmly invited to meet informally with audience members after the concert.

  • Please contact the bookings officer if you require access to the venue for pre-concert rehearsal.


Please make sure you time your programme before publishing it. It ought not to exceed 70-75 minutes, and this includes any verbal introductions you choose to make. If a programme is likely to be too long, the Society may ask for it to be amended accordingly.
