Concerts for Craswall is an independent charity offering live chamber music and choral concerts in south west Herefordshire. The charity is managed by a Board of Trustees who each bring a wealth of experience in a variety of forms across the business, charity and music sectors.

  • have good time-keeping ability.
  • be able to act impartially, with fairness and respect others’ confidences.
