‘Has been around since 1903, which makes us one of the longest-established amateur dramatics companies in west London. We are a friendly crowd, always eager to welcome new faces. Our performing year usually consists of an autumn musical show plus a smaller-scale show, concert or revue in the spring, and other special events from time to time. We have mainly been known as a Gilbert and Sullivan society, performing acclaimed productions of these comic operas, but in the last few years we have expanded our portfolio.’

‘A chamber choir in Chiswick, West London ... Membership ranges between 50 – 60 people and we sing a wide range of choral music, both sacred and secular ... We sing three concerts each year but also organise other activities which enable the choir to sing in a new setting and to enjoy some more sociable experiences not always involving singing.‘

Hounslow Music Service runs a structured, progressive programme of bands, orchestras and ensembles for instrumentalists. Players must be having lessons either through Hounslow Music Service or privately, and acceptance to an ensemble will be dependent on a pupil having the necessary skills and level to join, as well as a place being available. Players’ ages range from young primary school children to post A-level students, and rehearsals take place on weekday evenings during term time. They are a great way to make music and meet new friends. Concerts are an important part of playing in an ensemble and all pupils are expected to perform as part of their learning.’

'Amateur orchestra of around 45 players. We play three concerts each season ... We concentrate on the standard classical and romantic repertoire and from time to time perform contemporary works. ... The orchestra fulfils an important dual function in that it benefits its members by enabling them to pursue a passion, and in the wider context it is a means by which the playing of and listening to serious classical music is extended out of the professional arena and into the community. We have a number of chamber groups which occasionally perform additional concerts.'

The museum's theatre space hosts a variety of musical concerts, films and dances throughout the year, and makes a unique and flexible event venue available to hire.‘
