             2015-16 marks the Golden Anniversary of Witney Music Society.








In the summer of 1965 a small group of people in Witney, with the active encouragement of the newly-expanded West Oxfordshire Technical College (now Abingdon and Witney College), called a meeting at which there was overwhelming support for establishing a Society in Witney dedicated to putting on regular concerts by professional classical musicians. The result was the foundation of the Witney Music Society. Its first concert, given by the Linden Singers, one of the UK’s best known small choirs at that time, was on 19 November 1965.
A pattern was soon established of holding six concerts a year on the second Friday of each winter month (October to March) and this has continued uninterruptedly ever since. For the first 25 years or so the regular venue was the College’s Hall, but, when this was partitioned off by building alterations in the early 1990s, it changed to Wood Green School’s Hall, where it has remained ever since.



A new website (work in progress) will appear here within a few weeks. The new website will be more user friendly and adaptable for access by mobile devices.

It will include details of the special concerts that we have arranged to celebrate Witney Music Society's Golden Anniversary Season.

Please keep checking here for when the new website goes live!

Witney Music Society is appreciative of the financial support and  encouragement which it receives from West Oxfordshire District Council, Witney Town Council, from the advertisers in our brochure and for individual concerts, from Making Music and The Countess of Munster Musical Trust.  

This, together with a flourishing membership, enables us to offer performances of a very high standard.

The Society has over the years also received grants from the Witney Educational Foundation, which allow us to arrange concerts for schools within the Witney area.
