FGS Meetings

Annual General Meeting to be held on 25th June 2017

We would love to see you or your society at the FGS AGM where we spend very little time on the formal meeting but most of the day playing together.
However numbers are limited so use the application form if you would like to participate.

Annual Conference and Workshop

Sunday 25th June 2017

The AGM of the Federation of Guitar Societies will take place on Sunday 25th June 2017. This year it will be hosted by the Dorset Guitar Society and held at Kinson Community Centre, Pelhams Park, Bournemouth

The day will begin around 10.30am (10am arrivals) and end at approx 4.30pm. Our conductor for the day is Grant Bocking who will lead us through the ensemble work. There will also be time set aside in the afternoon for each society to perform its own musical contributions. As well as a chance to rehearse and perform as a large guitar orchestra, it is also a rare chance to meet with so many other like minded classical guitarists- we hope we can fill the hall and have many societies represented.

We can cater for around 60 players. There will be a charge of £12 per person to cover the cost of the hire of the hall, buffet-lunch and refreshments. We would be with grateful if each guitar society would nominate someone to liaise with Sue at the Dorset Guitar society and let her know how many people will be attending from your society as soon as possible so that we can finalise arrangements for the event.

Please inform your members who do not have access to the Federation's website about this event- spread the word!

Please complete the above on-line application form with contact details of your society’s rep and an indication of the number of your members who would like to attend. Alternatively you can email Sue Chick with the information- sue.chick@delta-plastics.com

Or telephone John Edwards on 01202 293917

This information should reach us by no later than 1st April 2017

Cheques to cover the attendance (one per society) will then be due at the beginning of May after which we can distribute the ensemble music.

We look forward to welcoming everyone

Paul Thomas (Secretary Dorset Guitar Society)
