'A place of musical excellence where adults and children can learn an instrument and rehearse with others in a relaxed and friendly setting. We have an open door policy so why not come in to see us on a Saturday morning and see what people get up to in the name of music. We can’t promise that it will make you more attractive or provide superhuman powers. We can, however, promise you fun and the ability to take up something that might very well change your life.'

The choir was formed 450 years later, in September 1986 ... We have a varied repertoire and perform regularly at local venues, usually to help raise money for various charities.’

‘One of only 3 concert bands in Cambridgeshire and as such, enjoys very good audiences at the 10 concerts each year. Concert repertoire ranges in style from military marches, to film and musicals, to swing and big band jazz sounds, but also more challenging symphonic sounds, often only heard at orchestral concerts. The band was formed in 1973 at the request of former youth band members as there was no adult concert band in the area. The band founder, Laurie Hurst served as a musician with the RAF for 25 years. The band still play from many of his arrangements.’
