'Has taken place since 2001. Inspired by the musical world of Gerald Finzi, it is a unique celebration of poetry, music, culture, and ideas. Drawing on the work of a wide range of poets and composers working in the English language, the Weekend explores the sensibility evoked through their art. It offers opportunities to reflect on a distinctive musical tradition, to speculate on what it has taught us, and what it might also teach us as we look to the future.' Held Early April.

 

‘The line up includes 5 sexy saxes, 3 terrific trombones, 4 trustworthy(ish) trumpets, a classy clarinet, 2 gallant guitars, 1 punchy piano, a brilliant bass and a driven drummer. As if that wasn’t enough, we even have our very own female vocalist ... Please note we don’t take commercial bookings, we know there are many professional musicians out there struggling to earn a living, and they deserve those bookings. We like to play to support community events and to help fundraising for worthy charities. When we accept an invitation we don’t charge a set fee but a realistic donation towards our travel & other expenses is essential to keep us on the road.‘

Founded 2014: ‘An exciting chamber choir based in Ludlow ... specialising in singing 20th & 21st century choral works ...

With each concert the choir is expanding its repertoire, and has performed a wide variety of music including pieces written and arranged especially for the choir, as well as choral favourites’.

 

Category Chamber Choirs

‘Founded in 1858, the Society currently has around 130 members. We are always keen to welcome new people and we do not hold auditions for entry ... We perform in three main concerts each year, in April, July and December ... The choir performs a wide range of music, from the traditional choral repertoire to less familiar earlier and more-modern works ... Rehearsals move quite quickly and it is important that choir members are prepared to devote additional time to learning the works away from weekly rehearsals.’

 

Category Choral Societies

‘We are a non competing local wind band. We play at community, civic and fund raising events in and around South Shropshire.’

Founded 2004: 'Over the years the choir has amassed a considerable store of written music, covering around 100 songs ... Most of us join with little or no knowledge of written music, but after a short while we begin to acquire an elementary familiarity with it. If you like to sing, whether good or not so great, come and join our choir, and it is likely that it will improve not only your singing but also, maybe your life'.

'Ludlow Assembly Rooms opened its doors in May 1993 in the restored and updated buildings of the former Assembly Rooms, dating from 1840. The opening was the result of five years of tireless campaigning by a group of people who believed that our rural community deserved its own place of entertainment ...'

 

'The Regal Cinema in Tenbury Wells opened in 1937. Since then it has provided cinema entertainment for the town and the surrounding area, under commercial and volunteer-run groups.

‘We are not a cathedral, although the suffragan bishop of our diocese bears the title “Bishop of Ludlow”. However, we are the largest parish church in the Shropshire part of the diocese, and civic and diocesan services are held here. We host concerts, organ recitals, plays and exhibitions. We are the home of the Ludlow Choral Society, and an important venue for the Ludlow Festival ... The historic choral tradition of St Laurence’s was first recorded in 1492, making it one of the oldest choirs in England, a country famous throughout the world for its unique choral heritage ... Today's organ is one of the finest Parish Church organs in the country, and attracts recitalists from all over the world.’
