If you are interested in coming to Wirksworth Music Centre for the first time, or as a returning student, and have any questions at all, please do get in touch with us.

VOLUNTEERS!
We rely very heavily on volunteers to run our music centre and it has become clear that we are likely to need more help now to ensure safety. If you feel you are able to help, either on a Saturday morning or a Tuesday evening, please do get in touch.

Music Centre usually meets every Saturday during term time in the Hall, English Block and other rooms at Anthony Gell School. Session 1 is at 9 – 10:15am and Session 2 is at 10:15 – 11:45am.

The Youth Choir usually meets on Tuesdays during term time at Wirksworth Memorial Hall from 4:45pm – 6pm.
