'We aim to have something for everyone; traditional, modern, shanties, comedy, dance and sessions just for musicians, so they don’t feel left out. Entry (mostly) will be FREE, with a collection for the guests that night and a free raffle. Together with our sister clubs in Bedworth and Nuneaton, we aim to provide the best of folk music in the Midlands.'

 

'The Club is quite unique in that there is no admission charge despite the fact that there are top rate guests at almost every meeting (we just pass the jug around so you can give as much or as little as you wish: a minimum of the price of a pint - around about £3 - £5 is suggested). Our aim is always for everyone, guests, audience and floor singers alike to have a really good time.Floor singers are always welcome but we get very busy so we recommend a call or email to reserve a spot, on the night it is very much first come first served – if there is space available.'

 

'The festival is held every year in and around Nuneaton, and is open to all ages, children and adults, all cultures and abilities from anywhere in the UK. Entries are welcomed from individuals, groups, schools, etc. Classes can be non- competitive or competitive. All classes are adjudicated and all entrants receive a comment sheet from the adjudicator. The performing arts include the piano, stage dancing, speech and drama, vocal and woodwind, strings and brass sections. Performance days are held during April and May where entrants perform, are adjudicated and awards presented to winners of the competitive classes. Members of the public are welcome to watch ...'

 

'A large non-audition SATB choir that was formed in 1974 ... Today it maintains a choral tradition that began with Handel (Messiah, 1741) and now extends to include Bach, The Beatles and L’Estrange (Zimbe, 2008). The choir aims to prepare four new concerts each year. Variety is the spice of life, so two (Spring and Autumn usually) are based around one or two well-known pieces from different musical periods. At Christmas we combine the seasonal story with a more secular celebratory tone while the Summer concert is usually a selection of lighter and more modern music. We always aim to perform at least one concert a year in our home town of Atherstone.'

 

Formed 1902: ‘The Band, now consisting of Senior, Youth and Beginner's with over 100 members, performs many engagements each year in the area with the quality of the music and entertainment provided being highly commended ... It has struggled and survived through two world wars and has seen many musical directors, and even more players come and go’.
