'The Society developed from a concert held on 17th March 1977 by the Coull Quartet who returned 40 years later to perform at the Society’s anniversary concert. This concert had been suggested by the daughter of founder members Philip and Mary Mottram, who was friendly with members of the quartet. The concert was such a success that large numbers of the audience proposed that a music society be established, with the object of staging concerts on a regular basis ...'

‘An early music group based in the town of Doncaster. They take their name from the bands of musicians who used to be employed by local corporations as town musicians, “The Waites”. The present band are all local musicians with an interest in early music. They have been together now for a considerable number of years! The music they play is generally centred around the first half of the 17th century, the time when the first detailed accounts of the original Doncaster Waites appear in the archives. Their costume is also based on these accounts and the men accurately represent how the original Waites would have looked at that time. Women of course would never have been Waites, but we like to think that the Waites would have been joined by their friends and family in private music making in the houses and inns of Doncaster.‘

‘Originally formed in 1950 under the auspices of the Doncaster Co-operative Society ... The group was initially made up of young female singers and then went under the title The Doncaster Wheatsheaf Girls Choir ... Early in 1993 the decision was made to rename the group The Doncaster Wheatsheaf Singers in order to recognise the increasing age range of its loyal members - many of whom had joined as young girls and remain with them today. However, the group still actively encourages young members to join them.’
