  • An expanding Lending Library of books, records, scores, exhibition materials and other items. Our many Czech and Slovak contacts enable us to keep up to date in these areas are our members also donate many items.
  • Discounts on some books on music and scores.
  • Talks about Czech and Slovak music and musicians, often in conjunction with other organisations.
  • Social events, such as the Annual Dinner, where you can meet other members. We do not have branches, but regional events are increasing features of the Society’s activities.
  • Tours to the Czech and Slovak Republics. Our friends have enabled us to visit some very special places normally closed to the public.
