Broaden your knowledge of Music
In Friendly Company

Seventy-Eighth Season 2015-2016

All meetings held at Bayshill Unitarian Church Hall, Royal Well Lane
Cheltenham, GL50 3ET
(Rear of Cotswold Auction Company, Chapel Walk)

Here is the programme for the seventy eighth season of musical events to be presented by the Cheltenham Recorded Music Society, and we look forward to welcoming old and new members to our forthcoming season. Our meetings are very informal and we enjoy a coffee break at half time, when members can chat to each other, and give us a chance to get to know new members.

The programmes are presented by professional or knowledgeable amateur speakers, covering a variety of music which we hope will appeal to as wide an audience as possible. The programmes, which are illustrated with recordings on CD, are reproduced on our own modern, high quality equipment.

Visitors are always very welcome at any of our meetings and the £2.00 'temporary membership' charge will be treated as part of your current subscription if you then decide to join the society.

Parking - you can park on single yellow lines in Royal Well Lane,
Chapel Walk, Royal Well Place, and St George's Place after 6:00pm.
Car Park in Chapel Walk is free after 8:00pm.

Disabled access available

Fees for the current year are:

Members £20.00
(From Jan 2016 £10.00)

Visitors (per meeting) £2.00
