You don’t need to become a member to play with us, and you don’t need to play with one of our groups to join in one of our events, but you may wish to if you think that you’re going to be a regular player and attend lots of events, or if you’d like to further support The Cobweb Orchestra.

Members receive

  • approx. 25% discount on group subs
  • approx. 25% discount on event fees (excluding food and accommodation)
  • regular updates from the trustees
  • voting rights at the AGM so you can help shape our future work

You can join at any time of the year and pay for the number of months until the next official renewal date (either April / September).  You can  join or renew a membership by speaking to the secretary of a weekly group, or by sending a cheque. It costs £40 for a year, or £25 for non tax payers.

If you have enjoyed participating in Cobweb Orchestra activities, you might like to support the orchestra by making a donation (which can be gift aided if applicable). To do so, simply make a BACS payment: A/c: 65560297 Sort Code: 08-92-99

As a registered charity, we are able to claim Gift Aid on donations. Your Gift Aid declaration will make a significant addition to our income, and help us to maintain and extend our current programme of events. We can only claim Gift Aid from people who pay tax at the standard rate (or above) and who have completed a Gift Aid declaration form.

Please click here to download a membership application form, including a Gift Aid declaration. The form also has instructions on how to pay by BACS.

A ‘200 Club’ was set up for Cobwebbers to help with fundraising. You pay £2 each month; half of this goes into the orchestra funds as a donation while the other half goes into a monthly draw for 3 cash prizes. You’ve got to be in it to win it!
