‘Meets monthly from September to July ... We welcome (classical) players of all standards; our evenings are informal where members play solos, duets and other ensemble combinations ... There is no requirement to play a particular repertoire or standard, and some people simply come to watch ... Twice a year, we have public professional concerts of a very high standard and a growing reputation locally ... Most of our concerts have been oversubscribed ... We have gradually built up a reputation and are having to turn down world class performers.’

You can play solo or get together with other members or friends to play as a group. There are a few local bands that have formed from club members getting together on club nights.’

Meetings are held each month (except August) and typically consist of a dozen or so acts where members play one or two pieces either solo or as a duet, trio or ensemble. There is no minimum standard and if you would like the opportunity to play, perhaps for the first time, in front of like-minded guitarists please come along. If you prefer just to come and listen you will be equally welcome.’

‘The Society's aims are to promote the classical guitar in our region, through ensemble playing in our Guitar Orchestra, development of skills in the Youth Guitar Orchestra and arranging professional concerts ... Performing in the orchestra certainly helps to develop a person's musical skills and sight reading ability. It is a different discipline from solo playing, it gives the opportunity to perform at public concerts as part of an ensemble - how many of we amateur guitarists would have the opportunity to do this as a solo performer?’
