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 £45 for individuals, £65 for families and £23 for students. 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.


There is information about the music played at past meetings on the programme archive page.
