‘We are a friendly club, embracing all styles of acoustic music. Club nights start at 8.30pm on Fridays. Everyone is welcome - there is no membership! ... We have a mixture of Singers' Nights (when anyone can perform if they want) and ticketed guest nights with a professional artist or group, supported by local singers. If you just want to come and listen - that's fine too.’

Launched 2011: ‘The Folk Club meets once a month ... In our madness, once or twice a year we will organise a whole day of folk music. We generally start off with a singaround and music session in the morning then have two afternoon concerts featuring some of the best local performers and a big concert in the evening to finish off the day’.

'Formed in 1972 by Neville Ward from a choral class at Toot Hill School, Bingham. Its aim is "to educate and interest the public in music, particularly choral music, by the presentation of concerts and other activities". The original membership of 40 has now increased to around 90, with singers coming from a wide area of South Nottinghamshire, North Leicestershire and Lincolnshire. The Choir performs three concerts in each season, including an ever-popular Christmas concert. We also hold a day choral workshop in February, extending a warm welcome to all-comers.'

'Part of the musical landscape of the East Midlands since 1991 ... Over the last few years, Nottingham Concert Band has pioneered the Playday concept, which has proved to be an effective and popular contrast to weekly rehearsals, formal evening concerts and outdoor events. Several months in the planning, each Playday provides the opportunity for band members and invited guests to gather for a full day of intensive rehearsing to work on challenging additions to the repertoire.'

‘Since its foundation in 1856, the Nottingham Harmonic Choir, Nottingham’s civic choir, has established itself as the premiere choir in the region and one of the leading choirs in Britain. In its early years the names of Charles Hallé and Sir Arthur Sullivan were among those associated with the chorus. At the beginning of the twentieth century its principal conductor was Henry Wood, later to become Sir Henry Wood, conductor of the first Promenade Concerts ... The full choir, numbering over 200 singers at the time, performed at the opening of Nottingham’s magnificent Royal Concert Hall, which has become the venue for the majority of the Society’s concerts ... Most summers however, we move to the sublime surroundings of Southwell Minster, where the friendly atmosphere and fine acoustics complement much of the earlier classical repertoire.’

‘We are a weekly rehearsing amateur orchestra which plays a major role in the classical music of the City and County of Nottingham. Under the expert and enthusiastic guidance of our Musical Director ... our standard of performance has never been higher. We normally play four concerts each year. Our repertoire spans all types of classical music and the choice of programmes is varied and challenging but always popular. In addition to local artists and a number of winners of the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition we have featured internationally known soloists in our concerts.’

‘Formed in September 1983, the Choir has grown from 28 members to over 40 and has established a reputation for high standards of singing and presentation. The Choir’s repertoire comprises over 260 pieces of music covering 400 years and spanning many styles from Byrd to works specially commissioned in recent years. Several of these are sung in their traditional language including French, German, Latin and Welsh, as well as Russian, Spanish and even Breton ... We run occasional singing courses and workshops for newcomers to gain an introduction to Choir singing and for our own members to revise some of the basics.‘
