‘The Circle was founded in 1999 to bring together local players of the classical guitar for regular meetings ... We encourage playing in groups such as duos, trios, quartets and whole-group assemblies. Solos can also be performed by those who so wish - members can take part in whatever type of playing they choose, and all standards of playing are catered for. The only prerequisite is that players should have some acquaintance with written music, but this does not have to be of an advanced level. The Circle generally holds two public concerts each year, and occasionally invites distinguished guitarists to give concerts, masterclasses or workshops. We play a wide range of music (not always classical!), ranging from early Baroque to, for example, the Beatles. New members are very welcome - the atmosphere is informal and the social aspect is not forgotten.’
