2016 Finalists

As a result of the continuing problems arising from the Covid 19 outbreak, the WACIDOM Committee have taken the difficult, but unavoidable decision, to cancel the next series of concerts that were due to run from 2 May - 13 June. This means that our next concert series will now begin in September this year, if the circumstances allow.

Updates about the next concerts will be publicised on this website, on our Facebook page, on Twitter and in local newspapers, so please do keep a look out for news.

We hope that all our supporters remain well and safe during these unprecedented times and we very much look forward to the time when we can all get together again, to celebrate and share in our love of music.

With all best wishes from Sharon, Diane, Brian, Irina, Helen and Kathryn

FREE SATURDAY LUNCHTIME RECITALS

Recitals

Recitals are held in the centre of Warrington. These recitals are usually arranged in groups of 4 to 6 weeks throughout the year and start at 12.30pm for approximately 45 minutes.

A new Grand Piano was purchased in 2009 through grants from The Coalfields Regeneration Trust and Grassroots.

WACIDOM started arranging free lunchtime recitals on a regular basis in 2000. That year there were 5 recitals, with 14 recitals the following year.

Currently it arranges approx. 25 recitals per year and has built up a regular audience of at least 40 and sometimes up to 80.

The recitals benefit the musicians by giving them a platform on which to perform and also the audience by providing a high quality product with easy access in the centre of Warrington.

The recitals are funded by donations received through retiring collections. To maintain them will require further funding. With that in mind, WACIDOM continually looks for sponsorship and grants to safeguard the recitals into the future.
