The Friends intend to explore different themes. Concerts may be choral or instrumental and we will try to cover the gender of styles that can be presented in the open.
Normally performances will be on Sunday afternoons to allow the audience an opportunity to picnic. No seats are provided. Please bring your own or blankets as the grass audience area may be damp. Likewise protection from the sun should be considered.
Concert details are advertised by poster throughout the area, in the Kimberley & Eastwood Advertiser and in various festival brochures, e.g. Eastwood Arts Festival, DH Lawrence Festival.
You may enrol on our email notification list for all FoCW and Broxtowe BC events at Colliers Wood.
