Friends of Yeovil Performing Arts Library Newsletter

The Friends of Yeovil Performing Arts Library are a group set up in support of Yeovil Performing Arts Library. The group was set up to support the library and to campaign and safeguard its future. It is a voluntary group and is not run by SCC or Yeovil Library.

Wincanton Choral Society hires it’s music through the Yeovil Performing Arts Library and so is happy to support the Friends group where possible.

New term starting on Monday 5th September

Summer has gone by quickly!

Our new term starts next week on Monday 5th September. For this week only members are encouraged to arrive from 6.30pm to allow music to be handed out before the rehearsal starts at 7.15pm.

The rehearsal will take place, as usual, in the Performance Enhancement Centre (PEC) of King Arthur’s Community School in Wincanton. There is plenty of parking on site and you can access the PEC from the front of the school or from the back (Dancing Lane).

If you have ordered your own copies of music please remember to bring your payment for them if you haven’t already sent it.

Membership forms for this year were emailed in early August, if you have not received your form please email our membership secretary who will email you a new copy –

Recruitment Drive For New 2016/17 Term

This year, in an attempt to encourage new members to join, the choral society has acquired two new banners that will be placed around Wincanton and surrounding areas in the lead up to the new term. It is hoped that the banners will alert passers-by to the existence of the choir and encourage them to join.

The banners have been designed so that they can be reused each summer without incurring alteration costs. The society would like to thank all business and land owners that have given permission for these banners to be displayed on their premises.
