"Her" Music Club has steadily developed, to become one of the best-supported in Southern England ... We present six concerts every season. The aim is to offer a wide range of music performed by professional artists.'

‘Mindful of the continual need to maintain an interest in its activities, and the world of electronic keyboard music in general, the Society is not afraid to attempt “something different” from time to time – especially when charities can frequently benefit from their efforts. The Club does not consist of organ aficionados: those who attend the monthly concerts simply do so because they enjoy music and live entertainment.’

‘The group was formed originally in 1971 with friends getting together to sing Christmas carols to the accompaniment of an antique portable harmonium. The instrument itself has long been left behind but the group has gone from strength to strength and established itself as a successful local chamber choir ... The choir has a fairly stable membership and we like to limit numbers to the low 20s. However we are always on the lookout for good voices and there are sometimes opportunities to cover when somone has to stand down for a time.‘
