Note on the Adbaston Community Concert Society (ACCS):

Each year, ACCS puts on four high-standard, usually classical concerts [occasionally jazz] in the mediaeval Adbaston church*, which has very good acoustics.

Our aim is to make professional concert level music available in the semi-rural Staffs/Salops area, at an affordable price of £8: audience around 50 – 80 people, sometimes more.

We try to give a platform to developing talents who will benefit from the exposure and in building their professional concert CVs

There are several local patrons and most concerts are kindly subsidised by SDAC* and/or others e.g. Manchester Camerata offer a sponsored soloist for one concert per year, as part of the orchestra's outreach programme.

Note: any local music enthusiasts interested in joining the ACCS Committee, please do contact Clive Kerridge on 280566 or Roger Savage on 850967 or via the ACCS website
