We meet on the third Wednesday morning at 10am at the leader's home in Upper Welland, October to May.
We show recorded operas from The Met, Australian Opera, The Royal Opera House, Glyndebourne et al, similar to those shown at local cinemas.
Performances are shown on a large screen via a blu-ray player and sound through a Hi-Fi system, almost like being there. We have coffee and biscuits in the interval.
New members are always welcome and we do not cap membership. Members are given a forward programme of dates. We operate a booking system which seems to work well, whereby If you wish to attend a particular meeting you `book’ at least a couple of days ahead by ‘phone or email so that we can organise the best seating arrangement. Booking is essential as we can only accommodate 20 maximum .
While normal meetings have not been possible during lockdown and virtual meetings have not been appropriate, group members have kept in contact with occasional telephone calls.
We also run a MUSIC APPRECIATION GROUP under the banner of Malvern u3a to which Ledbury members are welcome. These are hosted by some of the members on the first Wednesday of the month October- May/June. Host details are given in the forward programme and again, a booking system is operated.
