Adult Community Music Clubs


All clubs will be based at our new home, The Claremont Cent

Trafford Music Service has a successful history of providing the children of Trafford with a wide range of musical opportunities. We have long wanted to widen our provision to the adults of the Trafford community and with Trafford Music Service’s move to the Claremont Centre, Sale, this has now become possible. Listed here are the first Trafford adult community ensembles starting in September 2014. The variety and number will increase term by term so if there is something you are particularly interested in that is not currently listed, please do get in touch.

To help all those unsure about committing to the groups, we are offering the first session free! Just come down a few minutes early and state to the organisers you wish to try out the session.

All clubs will be based at our new home, The Claremont Centre in Sale , Manchester.
