Formed 1972: 'It organises concerts by professional performers; many internationally renowned, which take place monthly from September to April each year. They regularly attract audiences of up to 250 ... The atmosphere is friendly and informal and performers are encouraged to introduce the music and to meet members of the audience in the bar after the performance. Audiences enjoy coffee and a chat with friends during the generous interval. We go out of our way to welcome new members and listen to their views'.


'A non-profit Arts organization run entirely by volunteers. With 8 concerts a year ... a deliberately early start and finish time to our concerts, as well as reasonable ticket prices its aim is to encourage more families to attend classical music concerts. The structure of the concerts; a half hour spotlight concert by young musicians, followed by a half hour interval with an art exhibition, and then a one hour concert by the main artist is unique in the UK.'


'Personalised music lessons in state of the art premises ...  Students can work towards exams or just learn for fun. We are a public exam centre for Rockschool and Trinity and host private ABRSM exam days throughout the year so you will be able to take your exams with us in familiar surroundings.'


'The repertoire includes the full spectrum from light popular music both old and new through operatic, film and light orchestral works to the serious original brass band music performed by outstanding soloists and supported by an enviable collection of fine musicians. The aim of the band is to consistently provide music of the highest quality at a cost which reflects outstanding value for money. The benefits for concert promoters are the guarantee that the reputation and stature maintained will always command audiences which fill concert venues. The top British brass bands are renowned throughout the world for the standard and quality of their concert performances and the Foden's Band are no exception.'


‘The organisation was formed in 1989 as the Crewe & District Brass Band, by a group of parents whose children played brass band instruments. At the beginning of the year there were 29 players in the Youth Band and 18 in the training band. The membership quickly increased and the organisation began to receive financial support from the local Lions clubs of South Cheshire and North Staffordshire and which continues to this day. The band changed its name to Lions Youth Brass, and is believed to be one of only two organisations of its kind in the world to operate in the name of Lions Youth ... Honours include 2 national youth brass championships as well as many other titles.’


'Sandbach Choral Society, formerly Sandbach Voices, is a friendly, enthusiastic choir with a mission to bring choral music alive to the local community.'
