Welcome to the Oxford Branch.
Our meetings are usually held on the third Saturday of the month, from 2 to 4.45. Meetings are held at the West Oxford Community Centre in Botley. See the venue page for directions. All music is provided – please bring your recorders and a music stand.
Meetings are free to members and to first time visitors – so do come along and try us out.
Annual subscriptions are £48 for individuals, £70 for families and £20 if you are under 30 or a full-time student. If you join the Oxford branch you enjoy reciprocal membership with the North Cotswold branch. Non-members pay £5 per meeting after the first.
You can download a membership application in Word or pdf, and also a gift aid form.
We welcome members and visitors of any age, including children and young people, in accordance with our safeguarding policy.
There is information about the music played at past meetings on the programme archive page.
