Subscriptions for the 2018-19 season (September to June) remain at £175. Membership for those under 25 is free, and concessions are available for cases of difficulty (please talk to me about this if you want to know more).

Payment can be made in full or in up to eight instalments. If you are paying in full, you can use cash, cheque, BACS transfer or standing order.

To pay in instalments, these can be set up online or you can make use of the accompanying standing order form. The subscription must be paid in full by April 2019 and suggested instalments this year are 2 at £87.50, 4 at £43.75, 5 at £35, or 8 at £21.88. If paying by instalments, please remember to put an end date in your instruction!

If setting up online to pay in full or by instalments, please make sure your payment is referenced ‘GCS subscription’ so it can be easily identified. Whichever method is used, it really helps if either the full payment or the first instalment is made during September.

The bank details are: Gloucester Choral Society, sort code 40 52 40, account number 00007718.

As a charity, we are able to reclaim gift aid tax on subscriptions and this has been a valuable source of income for GCS. The majority of members have completed gift aid declarations in the past, but as the society became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation last summer, we now have a new charity registration number and so new gift aid declarations, with this new number, need to be completed.

If you have any queries about subscriptions or gift aid, please do contact me on
