Welcome to the Welshpool Music Club website
We bring professional performers to Welshpool five times a year so that local people can attend musical recitals that they would otherwise have to travel much further afield to see. Enrol for membership at the door for our first professional concert of our 74th Season on Thursday 13 October. Membership costs £30 (£5 for students), and gives entry to all 5 concerts in the Season, which runs from October to March. The full concert programme can be found by clicking on “Events” on the web site.
We depend on our membership subscriptions for the funding to continue our concert programmes and so encourage as many people as possible to subscribe, but for people who for one reason or another are unable to attend all our concerts, tickets will be available at the door for individual performances at £8 each (students £2)
All concerts begin at 7.30pm, and are held at Welshpool Methodist Church unless otherwise stated
Our current Season has now ended. Next Autumn we will be celebrating our 75th Season, and we hope that you will come and celebrate 75 years of live music performance in Welshpool with us.
