Membership is valid for the calendar year and costs £10 per annum for single membership or £15 for joint membership. Joint membership can be two friends not just spouses and partners.
On joining you will be entitled to a £4 discount on usual ticket prices. As we put on ten concerts a year this can represent a saving of £40 or £80. Exceptionally good value.
You will also receive a monthly newsletter with in-depth concert reviews and information about upcoming events both here and at other venues around the county.
Download and print your own 2019 membership form here or join at any of our concerts. Arrive early and join before the concert begins and you can buy your discounted ticket(s) immediately.
Ways to pay are detailed on the membership form either cash, cheque or direct to our bank. We cannot accept debit or credit cards.
We do not offer a part year pro-rata membership but if you join later in the year, after our summer recess, your membership fee will cover you for the first part year and the next full calendar year.
We are now starting the renewal process for 2020. An application form was included with the November paper version of the newsletter which was sent out on 20 October. If you have opted to receive the e-newsletter, the 2020 form is it now available to download and print here.
If you do still receive the paper newsletter but have email, please do consider switching to the e-version to save the club postage and stationery costs.
Traditionally, we have allowed members to renew up to the end of February but for 2020 we have brought this forward to 31 January 2020. Why? Membership fees are an essential part of the club's working capital and it helps us to know as soon as possible how much we have to work with for the new year. We also send the theatre box office a list of our paid-up members so they know which members continue to be eligible for discounted tickets. It helps the box office to have this information as soon as possible into the new year. It will also help your membership secretary to be able to complete this part of her job over three months instead of four or five. Thank you.
We plan to issue new membership cards for 2020 but they will be produced as a batch so there may be a delay between making your application and receiving the card.
