Joining the Midlands Early Music Forum enables you to:

  • find out what’s going on in the area.
    We send out regular Newsletters to members, including news, reviews, articles and a diary of events, as well as information about other early music events and services. If it’s happening, we’ll tell you about it. Communications are by email where  possible, otherwise by post.
  • participate in workshops on a wide range of early music topics.
    We engage tutors of the highest reputation for our highly-acclaimed workshops. Members receive early notice of events (booking forms go out about six weeks in advance) so that they can be first in line for places, and discounts on our already-reasonable entry fees.
  • contact other like-minded members.
    Our regularly-updated membership list will allow you to locate members in your immediate area, or members who share your specific interest. If you want to start a small choir, join a dance group, learn to play the spinet or find a local crumhorn maker, this is the place to start.
  • advertise for free.
    Members are able to place free personal (or discounted cost for commercial) advertisements in our newsletter, so you can advertise instruments for sale, plug performances in which you are involved or grow your quartet into a quintet.
  • borrow an instrument.
    We have a small stock of loan instruments available for you to try to see how you get on with it before buying one of your own.


Individual membership is just £10 per year.

Student membership is free.

Group membership is £20 per organisation per year. This includes mailings to a single address, and entitles two people from your group to attend each workshop at member rates.
