About Witney Music Society

Membership of the Society gives free entry to all concerts. Tickets for individual concerts are available from The Music Stand, High St. Witney or from Greenway(Antiques), Corn St. Witney, or at the door on the night.

The Witney Music Society was founded in 1965. It exists primarily in order to provide the town with The Witney Winter Concerts, a series of chamber music concerts given by professional musicians throughout the winter months, October to March. Concerts are held on the second Friday of each of these months, the usual venue being the main hall of Wood Green School, Woodstock Rd., Witney. Occasionally concerts are held at High St. Methodist Church in the town. Since 1978 the Society has also arranged a visit each summer to a Promenade concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London. More recently a second trip has been added each spring to Symphony Hall in Birmingham. Members of the Society have free admission to all the Societyís concerts in Witney in return for an annual subscription. It is not necessary to be a member of the Society in order to attend its concerts, but the seasonís membership subscription is fixed at a level that provides a discount of about 35% on the sum of the ticket prices for the individual concerts. Concessionary rates, both for individual concerts and for season membership, are available for senior citizens and for students. Children from local schools are admitted for £1 per concert through an arrangement with the Witney Educational Foundation (WEF). The WEF has also, for many years, made funding available to the Society so that it can arrange concerts during the school day in Witney schools by professional musicians. Witney Music Society is a registered Charity (registration number 1041940). It is affiliated toíMaking Musicí(the National Federation of Music Societies) and also receives financial support each year from the Witney Town and West Oxfordshire District Councils
