Dereham Organ and Keyboard Society has been established for over 20 years. We are a "players" and "listeners" club, with monthly meetings held throughout the year, usually on the second Friday of each month. Always check dates as sometimes changes do occur.
We hold our meetings at Yaxhsm Village Hall, which has great amenities and easy access and parking for all. We start at 7pm and finish at 10pm. Our entrance charge is £3 on our normal evenings including free refreshments. Our evenings consist of members playing for the entertainment of everyone else. Many members bring their own keyboards on which to play, as they find it better to play on their own instruments, but if you haven't brought yours with you, then you can use someone else's with help at hand to navigate your way through your performance if required. Normally we have about four keyboards present of different types and usually a Wersi Sonic 500 organ on a regular basis. All are encouraged to play, but no pressure is applied to do this, as if you want to just listen that's fine. All standards from beginner to advanced players are coped for, with advice or help with any problems on hand (if we have the knowledge!) or hopefully someone can point you in the right direction.
Once a year we hold our professional concert, usually in October, where we have a guest professional keyboard player come to entertain us for the evening. This October we have the great pleasure of Brett Wales.
All are welcome, but please check dates beforehand to save disappointment.
