Concerts for Craswall is a small local charity, with a few simple objects:
- to promote live chamber and choral concerts for exclusively charitable purposes.
- to support the community of Craswall in maintaining and enhancing the culture and heritage of the parish
- and to advance, improve or develop younger people’s appreciation and education in music.
We are currently seeking new trustees and enquiries from volunteers; capable and motivated people with experience in the following areas: finance/bookkeeping, administration, income generation, marketing, classical music and governance.

The role is unpaid, but immensely rewarding in terms of the positive impact of our work on the local community here in south west Herefordshire.
