'We use the term "folk" loosely and all kinds of music from Blues, Country, Americana, Jazz, Traditional and Contemporary Folk are always enjoyed along with poetry and story- telling. Club nights have a relaxed atmosphere and the hall has great acoustics, so there is no need for amplification. You can perform either on or in front of the stage or, if you prefer, from where you are sitting. If you feel happier singing with the words in front of you, that's not a problem as a music stand is provided.'

‘The Worcestershire-based ESO was founded by William Boughton as the English String Orchestra in 1978. It soon formed a reputation for performances of English music and made many recordings. For full orchestral repertoire, ESO grew to become the English Symphony Orchestra. Ever since then, “ESO” has served as an acronym with a dual meaning. The idea of ESO is to share the joys of live music with as wide a population as possible. Our typical concert programme will features performances by the Symphony and String Orchestras, and a variety of chamber ensembles, in locations around the West Midlands, Three Counties, Shropshire, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, plus invitations to appear elsewhere for festivals or in residence.’

‘The original Musical and Amicable Society was founded in 1762 by James Kempson, who directed the choir at St Bartholomew's Chapel, Birmingham. Together with fellow musicians from St Philip's Church (now Birmingham Cathedral), Kempson and his singers gathered on a regular basis at Cooke's tavern in the Cherry Orchard "for practice and recreation" In 2003, Kate Fawcett and Martin Perkins decided to revive this historic society as a collective of professional period-instrument specialists, performing in combinations ranging from small ensembles to full orchestra. Our presiding ethos is one of chamber music - however large or small the formation - where each and every performer has a significant role to play.’
