Originated as the Music Lovers' Concert Club :  'In wartime Bury St Edmunds, local music-loving residents and visiting forces personnel created an audience for classical music, both live and recorded. The national Council for Encouragement of Music and the Arts – a war-time precursor of the Arts Council – recruited groups of professional musicians brave enough to undertake tours to blacked-out towns outside blitzed London.' The Club continued after the war and now offers about half a dozen evening recitals per season.

Fortnightly evening Gigs ... Note also the Milkmaid Thursday Folk Club which is a 'monthly folk club for people with a disability. This club was started in 2008 and has proved to be extremely successful. It is regularly attended by 30 - 50 service users, family members and carers. Internationally and nationally known artists are booked to play at the club, always for a reduced fee and sometimes for free.
