Oxshott and Cobham Music Society

Subscription renewal

SUBSCRIPTIONS: £80 per annum with the concession of £5 for applications sent to our membership secretary, Cherry Eddy, by the 1st September 2017.

Young people under 26 years, may continue to attend concerts free of charge.

PATRONSPatrons are an important part of our Society. Their minimum donation of £45.00 or £75 per couple helps us to fund one concert each year. However, we are not unaware of rising costs, and artists must be paid a fair fee so we are always delighted to welcome another Patron to the ranks. Each Patron receives two guest tickets for the Patrons' Concert and an acknowledgement in the programme, unless they prefer to remain anonymous.

 

Thank you to all those who have

contributed so much in terms of work

and donations, in our last season.

 Without you we could not continue.
