St Peter's Music Society


About us

St Peter's Music Society has existed for the last 24 years to present concerts, normally of chamber music, in Budleigh Salterton. But because of lack of new volunteer help to organise the Society in the future, the Annual General Meeting held in July 2018 made the decision to discontinue organising concerts with effect from 15th October 2018. We made this decision with heavy hearts. One does not like to be the person or people who actually decides to stop doing some that has been in existence for a long time.

We held a sort of Mini-Festival over the last weekend in April 2018, under the generic title of 'GOING OUT WITH A BANG.' After 24 years worth of music and more than 150 concerts of enormous variety, we thought this was an appropriate title. This proved to be an excellent weekend of very varied music that was appreciated by all who attended.

Over recent years the size of our audiences has been less than we had hoped for despite the quality of the programmes and performers. We did not cease trading because of financial difficulties but purely because of a dearth of enthusiastic helpers. The remaining few were becoming too old to carry on! The balance of funds was returned to St Peter's Church to use for their musical needs.

We thank all our previous supporters. We are sure they will not be short of alternative sources of good music in the area in the future. Goodbye.
