Meetings are usually held on the second Saturday of each month, from 2.30pm – 5pm.  For venue see top right-hand side of page.

2014/15 meeting dates:- Oct 11th; Nov 8th; Dec 13th; Jan 10th; Feb 14th; Mar 14th; Apr 11th; May 9th; Jun 13th; Jul 11th; Aug 8th; Sep 12 (+AGM).

As is the branch’s annual tradition, the meeting on Aug 8th will take place at Tixall Village Hall.

A reminder:- at the next meeting on 8th August at Tixall Village Hall, there is to be a raffle – prizes gratefully received on the day.
There may be some second-hand music for sale as well.
The 12th September meeting at Penkridge will be a little different this year. We are to have a bring and share meal (to celebrate the successful hosting of the Conference and Festival) starting around 12.45pm. This will be followed by a short AGM and then our playing session.

On Saturday 9th May the branch enjoyed playing under the direction of Wendy Pettit who treated us to a variety of music during her Pastoral Visit.  Thank you Wendy!

Meetings are for anyone who can read music and enjoys playing the recorder.  The playing of more than one size of recorder is optional. You don’t have to worry about holding a part on your own or playing solos.

We don’t cater for absolute beginners, but can put you in touch with experienced teachers.

The meetings are an ideal way to make contact with other players in the area.

Age is no barrier – we have members from eight to eighty!

New members and visiting players are always welcome.

Membership fee includes an amount payable to the SRP, branch costs and a subscription to the quarterly Recorder Magazine.  

Current fees for September 2014 – August 2015 are:

  • Individual Member £36.50
  • Household £57.50
  • Student £17
  • Visitor £5 ( free for first two visits) which includes refreshments.

Conference and Festival Weekend:

Our branch hosted the annual SRP Conference and Festival weekend which was held at Wolverhampton Grammar School on April 18/19th 2015.
