Welcome to the West Wight Arts Association
The West Wight Arts Association has been providing entertainment in the form of classical music in the Isle of Wight for 70 years, having been founded by the Arts Council in 1947. The 2016-2017 season is our 70th birthday celebration year, and we have some special performances scheduled, not least our 70th Season Birthday Performance by the Pop Up Opera.
We put on a season of eight chamber music concerts by talented young professional and established musicians on Saturdays monthly from September to April in the Memorial Hall, Freshwater. Tickets are available online from our Programme, from Totland Parish Council Offices or can be reserved from the West Wight Arts Association tickets page.
West Wight Arts Association Membership is also available that secures your seat, and offers a great discount.
Many members of our loyal audience have helped West Wight Arts Association in the past by generously sponsoring one or part of one of our concerts. This has enabled us to keep up the very high standard of performance for which West Wight Arts Association is noted.
Next season the total cost of artists’ fees will be £11,925 so the average cost of fees per concert is nearly £1,500. There are of course many other costs involved, hire of the hall, upkeep of the piano, publicity, printing, insurance etc.
If you enjoy the concerts you might like to consider contributing towards the cost of a forthcoming one, perhaps to celebrate a personal occasion or to commemorate someone. Contact us for more information
