A MUSIC club is celebrating its 70th anniversary.

To celebrate 70 years since the Evesham and district music club was conceived, a special programme of music and musicians has been planned for the 2018/19 season from September to April 2019. Three of the evenings involve musicians who have appeared at the BBC Proms .

Membership co-ordinator, Sally Hutchinson, says: “We would like to encourage more people to sign up as a member for these concerts, at a discounted rate, before the first concert on September 19, so that they can enjoy 6 fabulous concerts and make a saving of £26 for this special season.”
