Andover Music Club History

A large part of the Music Club's history is available on the web site by following the Previous Seasons link. If you own programmes from the earlier, missing, concerts then do please contact us. There are email links located at the bottom of Season pages 1 to 50. If you have any old programmes then please bring them along to the next concert and pass them to a committee member.

Below is more general information regarding our concerts:

Concerts take place in the tiered auditorium of the Lights, Andover. Seats are unreserved, so concert goers choose their seat on arrival.

Access is available to all, but it would enhance your experience if those concert goers with special needs could contact Steve Davis by beforehand to discuss their specific requirements. An induction loop is also available, please enquire at the cloakroom. There is no formal dress code.

The Lights Arena offers a full bar service as well as teas, coffees and ice cream for pre-concert and interval drinks, which can be ordered beforehand.
