WELCOME How To Find Us
At Manygates Music Centre we strive to enjoy our music making in a happy friendly and cooperative environment. The Music Centre runs 10 musical groups, of different standards, which are listed below. We rehearse every Saturday morning between 9am and 12 noon in term time at the Manygates Centre and hold several concerts each year. The great pleasure of performing music with others is our shared aim!
The cost of attending Music Centre and WMS Ensembles is only £40 per term and we always look forward to welcoming new young musicians! Please come and visit us at any time or take part in a free taster session.
