Founded in 1996, Burnley and Pendle Music Society exists to promote live classical concerts by professional musicians. Most of our events are solo or chamber music programmes, thus filling a significant gap in local music provision, and many involve young, highly-talented artists at the beginning of their professional careers.

Our season normally consists of four concerts, one each in October, November, February and April. The main venue is St. Peter's Church, Church Street, Burnley which is a warm building (underfloor heating) with comfortable uphostered chairs instead of pews and with toilet and refreshment facilities in the building. There is convenient off-street parking in a school-yard very close to the church. Since we are Burnley and Pendle Music Society we always hold one of the four concerts at a venue in Pendle. This season the chosen venue is Higherford Methodist Church, Gisburn Road, Barrowford. Being much smaller than St. Peter's it is especially suitable for the more intimate events such as the one featuring Concert Royal in November this season. There is limited parking at the church but the Pendle Heritage Centre car-park (across Gisburn Road and just off the end of Colne Road) is within easy reach.

Society membership, which covers admission to all four concerts, costs £30, which we regard as good value. Non-members may attend individual concerts at a cost of £10 (payable at the door). Accompanied children and full-time students who are 18 or under are admitted for the nominal sum of £1. The idea is to encourage parents to bring their children to classical concerts and to be able to do so without it costing an arm and a leg.

Printed programmes and light refreshments are provided at no extra charge.
