Founded some twenty years ago to encourage the love of serious music especially amongst the young, we provide live music in different genres performed by highly gifted professional artistes, many of whom have international recognition.   Probably no other local venue provides such recitals on a regular basis throughout the year and at a very reasonable expense.

Why travel to London when this quality of musical satisfaction can be found so close to home?
