We also have a number of teens and young people who started in LOS as children in shows ... We put on one large scale production a year at the Epsom Playhouse, and usually one “revue” type show such as an Old Time Music Hall, Songs from the Shows or concert, in a local village hall.’

‘Currently has over 40 members but always welcomes new players of an appropriate standard. Prospective members should have a good standard of playing and sight-reading – and be prepared to play any of the usual sizes of recorder (descant, treble, tenor or bass) as required. Players of larger instruments (great bass and contrabass recorders) are particularly welcome ... We usually give a concert at the end of each season (June/July). The music we play covers a wide range of styles and includes both “in house” arrangements and original compositions. Sometimes we invite other groups to perform in the concert – either on their own or with the orchestra.’

‘Since its inception in 1996, Edition HH has taken a boldly eclectic approach to repertoire, building up a list that embraces the byways of the Baroque as well as the cutting edge of contemporary music. Seventeenth-century consort music by Simon Ives or the keyboard works of John Dowland sit happily side by side with pieces by a select list of present-day composers ... In between the early and the modern, the HH catalogue finds room for unusual strands within the output of the classical masters and their less well-known contemporaries, as well as intriguing period arrangements of otherwise familiar works ... The fastidiousness that informs the preparation, content and presentation of all Edition HH publications is complemented and confirmed by the use of state-of-the-art production techniques and painstakingly researched illustrative embellishments, making each imprint not only a valuable artistic vehicle but a pleasurable artefact in its own right.‘

‘The Chapel is the only place of worship in the UK belonging to a Lord Mayor and Commonality, and is thus designated a “Civic Peculiar”. It does not have a parish or particular denomination, and has sought a mission which recollects its foundation and history, in ways which are relevant to the present age and consistent with being “of the City Council”. There is an excellent choir of eight voices, supported by an equal number of deputies. Worship is according to the Prayer Book  ... There are also frequent musical concerts, typically on Saturdays at 1.15pm. The chapel choir and deputies make up the sixteen voices of the Chapel Singers, who perform two or three concerts per year. There are also recitals from music students at the University and Red Maids School, and vocal, organ, and other instrumental recitals. These concerts are all free, with a retiring collection.‘

Our aim is to create a relaxed and intimate atmosphere to allow you to enjoy the best in music to the fullest in our convivial surroundings ... We have been running since 1983.

We only put on guests we like ourselves, and there is a very special kind of warmth and friendliness about the club which makes an evening here so enjoyable.

‘Founded on 16th September 1999 by Steve Smith, a local music teacher. He wanted to provide the opportunity for brass and woodwind players in the area to play in a group. Playing in a group builds confidence and is a great way to improve skills whilst having fun ... Blowzone plays in public several times a year. These are mostly informal occasions providing entertainment at local fairs and fetes. Performing is an important part of gaining confidence as a musician, and it shows our friends and families what we have achieved ... New brass and woodwind players are always welcome. Our members are of all ages, from children to the retired, and range in experience from about Grade 3 to Grade 8 and beyond.‘

‘Our Society was formed in 2008 after many years wondering how to promote the music and history of Eric Coates ... The Eric Coates Society is promoting his  music and history and we welcome any one who shares our enthusiasm ... Eric says in his autobiography that much of the inspiration for his music came on those occasions when he cycled around the highways of Hucknall and through the lanes leading to the A60 and the winding lanes into Southwell ... His music still stirs the emotions. One of his master pieces,used for the score of the film The Dam Busters is seen as a very patriotic work and is played at many concert programmes. The long running BBC Radio programme Desert Island Discs still opens with the well aired Sleepy Lagoon written in 1930. (The BBC added the sound of a seagull.)’
