Minsthorpe Music Centre

WELCOME                                                                       How To Find Us

Minsthorpe Area Music Centre is a vibrant, lively place where young musicians meet every Saturday morning to enjoy, create and expand their musical skills through playing together in various ensembles. Several concerts are performed throughout the year and are a very important part of developing skills, confidence and self-esteem in a musician.

The groups rehearse every Saturday morning during term time from 9.00am until 12.00 noon at Minsthorpe Community College in South Elmsall, Pontefract.

Minsthorpe Music Centre is a safe friendly environment and welcomes all newcomers to come along and take part in a musical experience! The cost of attending Music Centre and WMS Ensembles is only £36 per term. Please come and visit us at any time or take part in a free taster session
