We aim to perform 3 or 4 concerts each year and these will normally take place in Melrose Parish Church. For concerts that we run ourselves, entry is ticketed, adults £10, 18 and under free. Concert programmes and refreshments during the interval are included in the ticket price. We are a not-for-profit organisation raising money at our concerts for charities with local connections.
