Knighton and District Concert Society

Patron - Sir Robert Green-Price Bt.

President - Graham Trew MVO

Vice President - Lord Berkeley CBE

The Knighton and District Concert Society has been running for over sixty years and aims to bring classical music to the people of this small Welsh Market town who would otherwise have to travel to Birmingham, Shrewsbury or Hereford. There are five main concerts in a season, which starts in October and runs through to March. We try to use young professionals where possible, which not only gives them an opportunity to perform, but showcases the marvellous up and coming talent we have in this country. The programme is varied, with solo vocalists, piano players, string and wind ensembles, percussion, and sometimes groups with more unusual instruments.

The Concerts are held in St Edwards Church Hall in Knighton on the fourth Sunday in the month at 3.00 pm. Tickets are on sale at the door and cost £12.00 for adults (no concessions) with entry for students and children £2.00. It is also possible to buy a multiple/season ticket at the start of the season for £45.00 for five concerts. These are transferable, so if you have to miss a concert, you can loan it to a friend for the day.

PS: If you have any concert programmes, particularly older ones, which you would care to donate or lend to our archives, please contact Patricia Shaw 01547528950, shaw435@btinternet.com.

Next Concert News!

After a year of enforced non-action, we are finally opening our doors again this Autumn for one concert before Christmas.  

We still do not know what this winter will bring, so rather than book performers for five concerts and have to cancel them again, we are having one before Christmas and one, hopefully in March 2022.
