Join in

How do I join in?

You don’t have to ‘join’ to play with us. You will be made welcome whenever or wherever you decide to take part, at any of our events or groups. We are like a pick ‘n’ mix orchestra! You really can just come along and play. If you’d like to receive regular emails about our events, please sign up to our mailing list here.

You don’t need to become a member, 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.

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.

200 Club

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!
