Membership of the Society is open to all, irrespective of age, sex, ethnic origin or disability. The members of the Society shall be those who pay an annual subscription (at the rate determined by the committee). Membership gives free admittance to the six winter concerts and eligibility to vote in Annual and Special General Meetings. For information on how to become a member and the current subscription rate, click on the membership tab.  Hovering your mouse over this tab will open two further tabs, for use should you wish to become a member or make a donation using our on-line facility.


However, please note that should you wish to come to four or more during the season, it would be cheaper to become a member.


At all our concerts we give free admission to Children (under 16 and accompanied by a paying adult) and to Students (under 25 and full-time),
provided that seats are available – we have never turned anybody away yet.


Hover your mouse over the ‘Concerts’ tab above and then move it down to the current season before moving it across and then down to click on the concert whose details you wish to view. If the artist/group has their own website, you will find a link to it on the relevant concert page, where there are usually additional  links to video or audio clips. Details of previous concerts are also available.


We hold a season of six Winter Concerts in the Lecture Theatre at Clitheroe Royal Grammar School Sixth Form Centre, York Street, Clitheroe. Directions to the Centre may be found on the venue page. The Centre has disabled access and toilet facilities and there is free car parking in the school yard. A printed programme, with details about the artists and items to be played, is available at every concert; performers are also encouraged to introduce the pieces they are going to play. There are no reserved seats; the intimate nature of the venue makes this unnecessary; the seats are tiered so everybody has a clear view of the players. However, able-bodied patrons are requested to leave the front row free for any who may have difficulty climbing steps. Refreshments are provided in the Dining Hall at the interval; you are invited to enjoy these and the chance to chat to friends at the same time.

In addition to the series of six Winter Concerts, we hold a Summer Concert in the Ribble Valley Council Chamber. This is situated on Church Street, Clitheroe. On the map on the venue page, the Council Chamber is below St Mary’s Parish Church and opposite Clitheroe Library. There are no tickets for this concert; admission  is by donation on the night (members and visitors) .
